Picture Book Marathon #17:
Title: "The Jester and the Seamstress"
Synopsis: A jester is so funny that he becomes rich. He begins spending money on more and more elaborate costumes. Each costume makes him look fancier, but makes him less funny. The seamstress gets funnier, though, because she is paid for each costume.
As you can probably guess, I didn't create this artwork for the Picture Book Marathon. This is a painting I just finished for the HCTO (Hale Center Theater Orem) if you've been following the blog long enough, you've seen the yearly jester artwork (scroll down past Chuck for the jesters.) Anyway, while painting this year's program cover, I made up a little story about the characters. Two birds with one stone, eh?
