62 – Re-thinking snake oil

December 5, 2020 By

Bottle…drinking…downward slide – connects in my mind to: insidious poison, sneaking, slithering, evil snake oil. But, snakes and alcohol are not all bad. So again, these are good images to include in my theme park, a place where fun and fear co-exist.
But how to draw a slide? I can refer to the many playground or water park tube slides, but first, I’ll really need to consider size and placement. Where is the top of the slide, how would a person enter it, from where? And, what about the bottle – does it have a function in the park, or is purely decorative? What is the size relationship of slide/bottle/person? I just know that I am going to be doing a lot of re-drawing on this.
