Pencil on yellowish paper.

This was started more than a year ago. It has been a playground of ideas, influences, and moods. Many things have are hidden and implied. Sometime in the future it will be colored with prisma colors. Notice the Spanish Galleon in the sky and the fish in the pickle jar.
Can you find the measuring tape ...

Thanks for your comment. It was a very long "doodle".

Thanks 
Did you notice just to the right of the pickle jar lid, in between the mushrooms, greeting the morning sun, is a silhouette of Sir Paul as he encounters a smiling mushroom in front of him. Hence "Fool on the hill". Inspired by "Magical Mystery Tour".

Completely wild. It would be even more wild in color.

I have already begun to color a black and white copy of this. In my own fashion, it will be completed in prismacolor. Be vigilant. Glad you were moved enough to comment and suggest its further development.

I'm sure it will tantalize the eye even more than the B&W version.

Yes, it is a bit chaotic. One day I felt like drawing one idea and on another day, another idea. The trick was integrating one day’s inspiration to another’s. Glad you like it.
