'The Absurd Balloon - A Song for the Absurd Balloon'

Another illustration in my Absurd Balloon series I did whilst in Scotland last week inspired by a book featuring beautiful photographs of Tibet. More in the series here.

Again I've tried a colour version in addition to the black and white version.  I'd be interested to know which people prefer; I think in this instance for me the blue really makes the illustration quite striking.

Love it! It is a great absurd balloon in any environment. Water buffalo? Great line work on the fur, and those guys with the horns are really cool too.

I love all your flying sheep. Great work, as always!

Very funny! Love your absurd balloon, especially in colour.

Definitely absurd but I love it! Much better than a flying pig...

Thanks all!

It's actually based on a musk ox rather than a sheep or a water buffalo.
