Inspired by great movies like Crooklyn. My little tale behind this illustration is about a breaker who sure never played double dutch with his sisters but when Maria, the Puerto Rican girl from down the street, asked him to join her, he didn't hesitate. His sisters will probably never let him live it down. Copy + paste this link for a detail - http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/2103/doubledutchdetailui9.gif

The background is amazing. But Heather Grey's texture will surely ruin this sweet art.

you always have nice backgrounds goin on..

kaloyster may have a point about the heather grey... but i think it'd look amazing on sagestone. feck, it'd work on any of the lighter colours.

I was doing a doubledutch design too -- but I didn't made the deadline. I'm goin to sub it till the '80's thing has calmed down.
Really well done rob. I'm rooting for this one.

Thanks for the great response everyone, makes the 12 hours building this sub well worth it.

And, yes, dancinghelicopter, she is giggling/heckling so much at her brother that she probably does have too :]
