Playing Make-Believe

When I was a kid I used to play dress-up all the time. Of course all of the standards were present; cowboy, police man, army man, Superman (with the ever present clothes-pinned bath towel for a cape), and ninja. I think most people grew out of this phase, and I think my mom really hoped I would. 'Cause after all, I scavenged what I could from around the house to aid in my make-believe adventures. Here I am, "all grown up" and I'm still dressing up in my free time and traipsing around the living room.

Anywho, I've been working out a drawing for a new painting and I wanted to make sure the costuming was convincing. There are a few more kinks to work out, namely how to photograph the action I need, but I thought I'd share this picture with you good folks as a sort of teaser.

Also, you'll note the sleeping dog on the pillow on screen left. He's such a lazy little thing.
