Silhouette of Children

silhouette-of-childrenThis silhouette of children could be used to depict a number of things – someone waving goodbye, someone waving hello or someone pointing to something off in the distance. It was drawn by Elmer Boyd Smith (1860-1943) for his own book The Seashore Book, Bob and Betty’s Summer with Captain Hawes.

I did make the drawing a bit bigger than the original. And, it did make things a little blurry. But, I thought anyone wanting to cut it out or work with it further might appreciate having a larger image to start with.

The drawing depicts a little girl with her arm raised as if pointing or waving at something or someone off in the distance. The little boy, in his knickers, has his hands on his hips looking in the direction that the girl is indicating. Both are wearing hats.
