Artwork Description

"I won't Grow Up,
I don't wanna go to school
Just to learn to be a parrot
And recite a silly rule.

"If growing up would mean
That it'd be beneath my dignity to climb a tree,
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up...
Not me.

"I won't grow up,
I don't wanna wear a tie
Or a serious expression
In the middle of July.

And if means I must prepare
To shoulder burden with a worried aire,
I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up...
Not me!"

The concept to this drawing came to me while I was watching the new Peter Pan movie... that you don't necessarily have to remain a little boy forever to never grow up.

"Because growing up is awfuller... then all the awful things there ever were."

Nice ink work, I especially like the flowing shadows and textures.

Art at its best.
