Ernesto and the Magic Trampoline / pt.2

What's this? Our hero, Ernesto finds a trampoline that shoots him up in the sky!

And as so it happens, he lands in the Kingdom of Imagination! Yeah!

Princess Coo-koo welcomed him and explained him how the Kingdom works : you picture something in your head and it becomes reality. For example, when Ernesto thiks of his favourite cuddly toy, it suddenly becomes a real life dinosaur!

Ernesto and the Magic Trampoline / part.1

illustration from a picture book in progress, which i wrote, "Ernesto and the Magic Trampoline"
This scene is about little boys addicted to videogames. I know all about it, i have a little brother.

but always just breaking apart
my pictures of you"
