It’s been quite a while since I did an illustration, but I saw the opportunity to draw a shoe and had to spend yet another hour in front of the computer. The reward is a spaghetti dinner made by JM because I was entirely too consumed to care about food other than a can of fancy nuts and a glass of red wine. Prost!
Today I remembered these chairs — I drew them when we arrived in Switzerland almost 7 years ago and I was sitting through one of JM’s yodel club rehearsals.
I planned a few entries in my head earlier today and have already forgotten what I wanted to say. This is not a good sign, is it?
You know that Eurythmics song You Have Placed a Chill In My Heart? Well, I had some friends who thought it was “chair.” Hence this week’s Illustration Friday entry:
JM’s been sick since last week, which figures since everyone has the week off due to some random sports holiday that the Swiss enjoy. Miracle of miracles is that I have remained cold and flu-free for longer than I can remember. Knocking on wood.
Sometimes swimming, sometimes sinking, sometimes merely floating along.
This entry stems from the intention to let my mind go while listening to the Rain Dogs CD by Tom Waits. It started out with a few lines depicting a cave wall with images of flying saucers and people. Next some animals appeared along with footprints leading around a corner. Suddenly there was mass deletion of objects and only the animals survived. Thus the imagining ends for the day.
I’m strong to the finish coz I eats me spinach. I actually prefer broccoli, but one doesn’t argue with Popeye. Toot toot.
Why it’s the supposed “ankle boot constellation” as it was discovered for the first time by little-known astronomer Boots Jackwood. Okay, that’s my stripper name and no I didn’t really discover a constellation, but it would have been so cool if I had actually understood anything, and I mean anything, in my college astronomy class. Why oh why did I take astronomy?
