22" x 15", watercolour, 2002,  private collection

This is another painting in a similar vein to Space Man in which there's a kid fantasizing bout adventure. I really like the expression on his face: so serious and a little Bond-like. In fact, he was sick when I took the photo and was probably hoping I'd go away quickly.

The particular Bond in this painting is Pierce Brosnan because the reference for him was readily available and that was exactly the pose I wanted, but I still tried to keep him a little Bond-like, and not specifically Brosnan.

There may be an ink outline around the boy like in Space Man, and the "007" was written in crayon.
