Illustration Friday - Layer

Hiding under thorny layers.

Do you remember Ding Dongs?

In Canada, they are called King Dons. Not to be confused, however, with Don King.

Don King

Maybe you've had one recently, but I haven't eaten one in decades. I loved those things. I could hear a choir of angels whenever I spied the shimmery, silver wrapper at the bottom of my lunchbox. I'd gingerly peel back the silver, careful to keep it intact so that I could later smooth out the square of foil with the back of my fingernail. Then, I'd nibble off the thin layer of chocolate before finally biting into the chocolate cake with creamy white filling. Mmmmmmm.

It appears that whatever is hiding within the artichoke loves Ding Dongs, too.

Oh! Guess what we are having for dinner tonight? No, not Ding Dongs, silly. Artichokes! Yum!

Have a fantastic week!

Illustration Friday - Sweater

What must I do to capture your heart?

Gosh darnit. When your mother tells you to put on your sweater, you put on your sweater or all sorts of body parts can go missing.

When I was playing around with patterns for Gumby's pigment-challenged cousin, the first thing I selected was polka dots which immediately made me jump in my seat. He looks like a giant Band-Aid, doesn't he?

Happy Valentine's Day!
Now go hug someone.
And give me candy.

Illustration Friday - Reverse

In hindsight, Swifty was probably not the best name for his new friend. If they went any slower, he swore they'd be going in reverse.

Have a wonderful week!
