The Fat Also Rises


From my latest series Rethinking Ernest or how my fat cat sees the works of Ernest Hemingway.

This drawing got me thinking about hot air balloons and I happened to come across these photographs in a hot air balloon inspired treasury on etsy:

The Owl of Air Polaroid by jerseymaids

I love the vintage grainy quality, reminds me of going to watch the hot air balloon festival as a child!

Now I'm considering what else rises:
yeast in bread, the cream in milk, tensions between warring countries, the sun in the morning, zombies? egos? temperatures?
Feel free to add to my list!
