Illustration Friday - Expired/ 'Hello, Can We Meet Again?'

I don't remember too much of my childhood, even though I'd like to believe it still isn't over. However, there remain a few things about it I simply can't forget. I remember the park near my house, it was too big for me; where mum used to go for her evening walk. Me and my cousins would tag along often, fascinated by the swings. There we sat on the lovely green grass and spent hours playing with tiny ladybirds. Most of the time I wondered how anything so small could be so amazingly pretty. Now I spend hours wondering where they all went. I don't see them anymore. Not even in the same park. Vanished.
It took me a while to realize the amount of time that had passed by since I had last seen a sparrow when I saw one the other day. I remember when I was small they would stop by often, bathing in a tiny pool of water, fluffing themselves clean; chirping away to glory.

I'm not going to pretend to be an environmentalist.
I'm not going to go around telling people how to behave with animals.
Extinct is a strong word. They can save it for tigers.
Yet all I'm left with is a few childhood memories and a pencil in my hand.
I'm sad; knowing I don't have a chance to relive the expired; I'd give my all to.

Illustration Friday - Brave/ PimpleburstMania

An Illustration Friday entry after ages.
A sketchbook cover I dirtied with make believe pus. A sketchbook cover my friends made and sold as a part of a course. Don't even ask me why it's called brawn. lol.
My obsession continues with Eruptions and the same character as he pulls his nerves together and braves to do what he does.

Is anyone else out there fascinated by volcanoes of these kind?
Do leave feedback!
