Reclaiming industrys exploitation of a childs imagination...

This is a paraphrase* over an illustration printed on a commercial product; a plastic drinking bottle with faux children's drawings on it. This is modelled after one of those drawings. I suspect that the commercial illustrator (name unknown to me) originally copied a few children's drawings.

Yes, the paper is supposed to be broken. It has been specially treated to appear in exactly that condition. I often do this.

* Paraphrase: A copy with some deviations from the original; ie. an interpretation, not an exact copy. In this case the line-work is a very close copy -- you will need a trained eye to spot the subtle differences.
