Oh Sparky, It’s Only You…

My younger brother Eric drew this for a Reflections contest like 25 years ago. I’ve been meaning to scan it in and color it for the LONGEST time, and when my mom found the drawing the other day, I finally scanned it in and got to work on it. I had to do a few things to the drawing after the scan. My sister’s dog took the liberty of chewing on the scrolled up drawing, so there was a bunch of re-construction that needed to be done. Also, one thing that Eric left out of the original drawing was the boy on the bed who would have said the title line “Oh Sparky, it’s only you…” So I fixed all the chewed portions and then I drew boy and placed him in the image before I colored it. It’s been one of the most imaginative drawings that Eric has done, so it was great to finally get it finished up and colored. I think it turned out rather well.
