TGIF - Games


I picture this fine gentleman as a lover of games. He's out to make his fortune by chance and by his own wits but alas things don't always run in his favour. Hence the ill-fitting jacket and the goofy, slightly dunce-like hat. He's mounted on a piece of mica and surrounded by tokens from the games he loves. This is my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.
