Beach Bound!!

BEHOLD! The private swim club lifeguard's "discovery" of the beach front GUARD STAND!!
The young James, wearing his comfortable & trusty GUARDS t-shirt, climbs to the top.. and SITS!
The outrageously overwhelming size of the OCEAN proves much more intimidating than the small town swim club POOL awaiting him back home.. HOWEVER..  he must push on and endure the new challenge!!!!
.. Mmm!!  A visit to the beach provides a breath of fresh air for the artist while also causing James to wonder ..
.. is there a future of Beach Bound Life-guarding Shenanigans in store for his GUARDS Characters?????  Perhaps!! Time will tell ...

STAY TUNED
