A quality act

The Illustration Friday theme is “vintage,” which for some reason made me think of old-time vaudeville.  That, in turn, reminded me of Alan Price’s 1960-something hit, “Simon Smith and the Amazing Dancing Bear.”  (If you’ve never heard it, you can watch the Muppets’ version here.  I’ll warn you, though, the song will be in your head for *days*.)

Anyway, that kind of led to this:

And yes, this is a loose definition of “vintage,” but I like to think I haven’t hit my peak yet!
