Remembering Childhood Whimsy and A Coloring Page For You

In honor of Whimsical Wednesday (a day early), I have decided to pay tribute to an early creative influence.  As a child growing up in the 80's I drew along with Commander Mark on PBS.  In one episode Commander Mark drew a snake tied in a knot.  It was one of my mother's favorite drawings and recently I decided I wanted to recreate it for her.  I have scoured the internet looking for the original drawing but have not been able to find it.  This drawing was created from my memory of it.

Frequently when I do a drawing I scan the initial pencil sketch (before any shading or coloring) so I am able to print it out and play with different colors and patterns.  I had so much fun playing with this drawing I decided to create a coloring sheet so you can play too...

Simply click on the picture to open up a larger version of the image so you can print it.  There is lots of white space so I encourage you to color outside the lines and have fun!
