Illustration Friday: Ripple

Keeping with the theme, here's another Illustration Friday submission referencing a Greek Myth from Ovid.  This one is the story of Narcissus.  He stared into his reflection, captivated by his own visage. Lacking any other desire than to gaze at his own beauty, he refused to leave the side of the pond for days and weeks. Poor guy, withered away to nothing.
  Kind of reminds you of a modern day VideoGame Player who dies at their desk while playing Marathon stints of WOW, doesn't it.
The Word for this week's Challenge is: RIPPLE

Wonderful... I love the colors and the lines.
You are right about modern day screen gazers. A perfect analogy.
