IF: Worn

zdepski's watercolor of a well worn chair with child playing video game
Summertime's Here! That means long hours avoiding the outside world and zoning out in mom's favorite chair, wearing a major rut in the cushion where your lazy butt lands each day as your thumbs desperately try to get to Level 32...

"TURN THAT TV OFF!!!"

"Get outside and run around a bit! When I was your age, all my pants were green from the kneecaps down from sliding in the grass or flipping rocks in the creek..."

"Yeah, yeah... Just let me finish this level!"

heheh great illustration, that reminds me of my son, who is playing x box as I type this. It is winter over here though so I'm trying not to feel too guilty!! Great pose and nice colours well done!

Now isn't this the truth?! They act like vampires, staying in to play those games! I'm with you, get out and play, run and shout, before you really have to stay in...it's called work! Wonderful illustration, I love the energy, color and expression!
