The Illustration Friday word of the week is “giant.”

It’s been a while since I participated in Illustration Friday’s weekly challenge, but this image seemed just about perfect for this week’s fun prompt. (If you’ve got a good memory, you’ll remember that I used this image for another post a long while back.)

Isn’t it curious that we have so many adjectives in our language that describe the relative ‘size’ of things? In our human hard wiring, SIZE must matter! I mean, consider the need for precision in relating the relative threat to our ancestors of, say, a pterodactyl vs a mere turkey vulture…

Of course, a giant (as a noun usage of the word) can also be a creature unto itself, as so many myths and fairy tales can attest.  🙂
