"Slow Death at Mall" – One of the "Being a Kid" Series
The "Slow Death at Mall" print is one of nearly 100 vignettes drawn from the boyhood experiences of the artist, David Gildersleeve. This book is based on "actual" events. Click image to enlarge.
This illustration recalls those endless trips to the store when “Mom” shopped for just-the-right article of clothing. Each garment she looked at, however, was seemingly just-not-right and so the “shopping” continued.
As a co-shopper, the kid expressed his approval whenever asked in an effort to conclude her deliberations. However, Mom soon became suspicious when her co-shopper seemed to like everything she looked at. When she finally asked if he was ready to go, the kid eagerly woke from a Rip-Van-Winkle-like trance and raced out the door.
What boy hasn’t endured such moments when growing up. I can’t help but think: “I was that boy, many, many times!”
This print (11" x 17") is foam-core backed and suitable for framing and is perfect for hanging in a boy's room. What boy wouldn't get a chuckle from this look at one of the activities a boy must endure when growing up. I can't help but think: "I was that boy!"
A walk down memory lane!
