This is kind of a random thought (as most of my thoughts are) What if you were in an airplane and you saw this? Anyway, great picture, simple yet meaningful.

lol, it would certainly draw a smile on my face and somehow would make me feel like I'm on the right path seeing how 'coincidental' the situation is.

Thank you and great thought.

it makes me sad too... kind of reminds me of someone dying, of rising up above all the pain and suffering of the earth to be...happy now...

It reminds me of that French movie where the balloon follows the little kid around and then it flies away. My mom cried for that movie...

Happiness is like a balloon... If you're not careful, and you let go, it will float off into the sky and never be seen again...

--- You'll just have to go out and get another balloon :)

Don't get depressed; there are plenty of balloons in the world. You just have to find them.

I WISH you could teach how you do this!! I'm so frustrated with Illustrator CS I could scream. I want to use this program like you so badly. I really appreciate what you can do.

I like this one. Even though he's a happy balloon, he's alone and traveling into the unknown, which can be scary. :)

I love your style. It's something that you don't normally see with vectors. It's simple, yet very nice looking.

I think it makes you sad because you think of how the poor little balloon used to be trapped on the ground beling pulled around be a little child.
