I'm Taller than you are







 




























 When I read Illustration Friday Challenge of Tall I thought of giraffes, which I have painted before. Then I thought of stilts which I love... my oldest brother made me a pair of stilts when I was 9ish and I went up and down hill on them. The change of perspective was amazing only a foot or two taller and the world was a new place!

Thanks for the positive comments, I wish I had the giraffe on stilts! Only thought of that after the fact.
