This week’s Illustration Friday picture is an scratchboard illustration (with colour added in Photoshop) for a game, and also a reference back to my “contained” illustration in January.

We used to play “What’s the time, Mister Wolf?” a great deal when we were little – more than “Red Rover” or “Branding” (although I have a story about that) or “Crack the Whip” (popular but dangerous) or “Sharks and Islands” (invented and evolving) or “Eggs Bacon Chips or Cheese” (convoluted). It may have been because it has a low entry threshold and shallow learning curve. (Wikipedia gives some information on the game – we tended to play the simplest version).
