The Drawing Game Part Seven




So here is the latest addition from Mika. I'll just give you a moment to collect yourselves.
...
I'll admit that it was a surprise. I had to sit down for a while. Make a cup of tea and sit with my back to the drawing, turning now and then to see if there really was a menacing, indigenous gentleman making scary hands at our girl. And then of course I remembered that she's just made of paper, as is he. Paper which can be folded and torn, cut and stained and punctured, embellished and decorated.
I told Mika that he'd painted me into a corner, literally and metaphorically, and he very kindly offered to come up with some ideas and I very politely said, "HANDS OFF, this one's mine!" Because, after all, this is where the fun lies...

His choice was very surprising, but quite good :D
Hah, you did the right thing, you're an artist too, you'll come up with something! I'm trying to think of an idea to carry on but I can't find one.

He's got a cheek offering to give you ideas! I can't wait to see how you deal with jungleman Beavis.

Now, it could start raining, just like the song "When you let it rain", which would be typical from Jungles...
