Riding the sky whale

Belated merry christmas – that stuff goes by way to fast. Anyway here’s an illustration I made for my girl-friend as a present. It now hangs nicely framed on our wall. The pic is 50 cm by 40 cm in size and drawn with ink and watercolor.
I did not have a concept except that I wanted to do something with New York because we both love the city. Originally there should have been a giant hedgehog (which my girl-friend loves) but I did not want to make it look like a monster destroying the city so I went for a whale.

No, the small guy on the back is not a prisoner.
