This series of illustrations is based on the play "You can't take it with you". This is a very classic American play, It tells us to enjoy the moment. I admire the grandpa in the play, he lives his life by the philosophy "don't do anything that you're not going to enjoy". For me, it sounds too idealistic, but it's true that you have to enjoy doing something before success. I filled the space with various things which thecharacters enjoyed doing, to give the drawing a sense of craziness. I'm trying to express emotions through characters, and infuse my sense of humor into my drawings.
