Illustrated Alphabet Letter X

X is for Xylophone.

I was asked to "pinch hit" on the letter X for our upcoming SCBWI Gallery show this October in Chesterton,IN.
I didn't want to go with the standard X is for Xylophone at first. Because it's standard and I don't normally do standard.
I played with the idea of XXL and doing a scene with a giant and some small characters, and I played with the idea of X marks the spot where I was going to do a pirate hunting for treasure. But I figured that was getting too far away from the X, so I decided to go with xylophone after all but not make the instrument the focus of the image.
The art was made with watercolors, and pen on watercolor board.
