This little spaz has enough fun just rollin' along in a cardboard box. Something that entertained me for hours I confess. I'd usually imagine it was a tank and I'd bring along a stuffed animal or two and let them tumble about until they abandoned ship. Turning a cardboard box around is near impossible so I never went back for them...

Hey, getting looser! It looks like so much fun - I want to play in a box right now!

The best part of drawing any carboard box is all the warnings that go on it :)

Love it, Bob. I really appreciate the looseness of it. And the designs are a real stand-out. Great stuff.

Lovin the simple color choices here. Great texture. Almost looks like its drawn on the side of a grocery bag. Very cool. Yeah, nice character designs, and I especially like the attention paid to the details on the box.

I also used to do this as a kid. Never had a hexagonal box, though. Another great turnout, Bob. Love it.

Ha ha! I wondered if anyone would catch the number of sides to this box! I just liken it to some of the sides bending and making more "walls"

Very fun, very charming! The printing on the box is a great touch. The kid looks almost crazed with happiness.

It's a shame the bunny was unable to withstand the "G's", but he clearly was not up to the challenge.

Great job! I especially like the color and BG and how those angles make for a nice composition.

I agree with Dave. Ur little guy is having so much fun. That is a great way to use a box as kid. We used to pretend that they were the sewers when we played TMNT. :)

It's all in the details Bob. I'd buy a print of this in a heartbeat. Top contender for next year's sketchbook so far!
