Previously, I had a sketch of a curious child, stretching to reach a candy cane at the top of the Christmas tree. The point of view was looking straight down at the child, from the candy cane, with exaggerated foreshortening. It was cute, but after some thought, I decided it better illustrated the word "reach" than "stretch."
Instead, I chose the illustration you see above. A teenage boy snapping the poor teenage girl's bra strap. The poor girl! It could be interpreted in many ways. At first, you might think those awkward years are funny. Then you might decide it's bullying. Then, you might decide it's something in between - the growing, changing, stretching years of teens. However you interpret it, there is topic is certainly "stretch."
