Excellent idea. Oh the struggle for the first chair!

i was once a drummer... we didn't have "chairs". so i guess we were all 1st chair in our own heads. :)

Oh, good one, Kim! I can relate to this since I played trombone in the band. Alas, I could never beat the first-chair fellow, but stayed steadily at second.

Much thanks for the reminder! And love the illo!

Very elegant drawing and I like the feeling of music here. Then again there is those sweated hours practising to reach that chair...Well done.

Nice and simplistic style! I had a look at your miniature collection and I am so hooked. I could stare at them forever. There is one that seems to be a giant leave, that is so cool, and the Mexicans with their bold colors - my favorite must be the one that has a bird house attached (but than I am biased because I am pro-bird houses). Fantastic!
