Illustration Daily – Day 153: May Day

Still playing catch-up. I expect to be back on track by the end of the weekend. So, finally I’m getting the May’s theme: Events. And to start the month we have May Day and a May Queen. The day is both a day of day of celebration (yay – summer!) and protest (yay – worker’s rights!). However, the holiday May Day and the distress signal, “mayday” have nothing to do with one another. The later is actually rooted in the French “venez m’aider” or “come help me'”.
