Can O’ Worms Sandwich

July 30, 2008Drawings, Illustration Friday

Had the idea for this drawing as I watched a bird eating his lunch the other day, and then when Illustration Friday posted that this week’s theme was “canned,” I thought Perfect! Lately work has been a series of unpleasant little messes — mostly small stuff I admit, but it seems to add up, and … Read More

Mystery Trip

February 9, 2008Drawings, Illustration Friday, Journeys

What do you pack when you go on a trip? This week the Illustration Friday theme is “Choose” so it seems appropriate that I’m trying to choose what to take. Whenever I go on a trip, I take waaayyy too much, and then when I get there, nothing matches, it’s the wrong season, or I … Read More

Illustration Friday: Sacrifice

July 19, 2006Drawings, Illustration Friday

This week’s theme for Illustration Friday is “sacrifice.” I thought it would be a good time to practice drawing cannibals since we’re going on a trip next week, and I think there might be some at our hotel. When I googled “cannibals” to get some ideas, this photo came up first. It’s from some joke … Read More
