Illustration Friday: Packed

© 2008 Radha Ramachandran

Rub-a-dub-dub,
Three men in a tub,

And who do you think they be?

The butcher, the baker,

The candlestick maker.

They all sailed out to sea.


Now that is one 'packed' tub!

It's funny how inspiration works. I went to bed idly thinking about the various meanings of 'packed', and woke up with the phrase 'Rub-a-dub-dub' in my head (literally). And of course then there was no looking back.
(Who could resist drawing three men in a tub?!)

:D

Cheers,
Radha

P.S: Those orange fish in the blue-green sea? They make me happy!
