Toad's hot air balloon

At some point this past winter we decided to introduce Vance to Wii games, Mario Kart and Mario Party, and he fell in love with Toad and began calling him the Marshmallow. He always "had" to be him, referenced the games with Marshmallow in their titles (wouldn't Mario just die!), etc. It was such a thing for him that when David found a stuffed toy at the store he bought him the random toy on the spot, bonus points went to Daddy for that one.

In June I got all those points back though, I took him to a theme park without David or Rylan (they were sick and we were going with friends). We were at World's of Fun and in the kiddo area (Planet Snoopy) was a hot air balloon ride. Vance was insisting that he had to ride the Marshmallow and I was completely clueless for a bit, and then I saw it:

When looked at in context of Toad, it very much looked like Toad, on the other hand most people will recognize this hot air balloon to represent Japan in the context of "World's of Fun" where everything is country/continentally themed. Oh, Vance. 

This is another one of the layouts that I did for my design team position at Soul Sentiments using Echo Park's Paper & Glue.

  1. great page. Love the colors and the flair!!

  2. The colors really work well in this layout. There's so much detail to look at and that story- it just makes me laugh. Kids are kids no matter where you are.


I'd love to hear what you have to say!
