PUZZLE TIME


My goodness, children! Even though I know I drew this illustration (for religious publisher Guideposts), I did it so long ago--back in the 80's, in fact-- I've no idea HOW MANY MATCHES they requested I put into the final art.
CAN YOU HELP ME COUNT THE MATCHES?
...........
(blecch. look what a crummy job I did of eyeballing the ellipse on the bicycle's front wheel.)

Man, that street is a fire hazard.

I count 14, but I never was good at those, so I'm sure I missed at least a few.

I counted 16, but everytime I count I find a new one.

I count 19. (Insert Paul Hardcastle joke here.)

Interesting to contemplate the possible religious message here. "The one who has stolen what was set apart for destruction will himself be burned with fire, Davey..."

I found 17. That was fun! I demand more games :D

(and obviously the front wheel is just funky shaped from when the kid hopped the curb and dented the wheel, bloody children)

Nakki, you are right and I was wrong.

Clearly I got a defective copy. Also, I do not know how to count things.
