Three Line Tales — The Last Chance

Alec’s last chance to achieve his lifelong dream of becoming a successful commercial artist was on the line.

His assignment was simply to create an illustration for the cover of a book, and he knew what he had to do, but as he sat at his desk, his father’s words kept echoing inside his head and paralyzed him.

“I’m getting older son and will soon retire,” Alec’s father had said, “and since you have no marketable artistic talent, I implore you to give up your silly dream and take over running the family’s money laundering business.”

    Haha! The second option is worse than failing at his ambitions.

    Not a very supportive father. I hope he sticks with the art work! Good three lines Fandango!
