The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Sail.”  

Sadly, I have some family business to attend to this week and will be out of town for most of it. I’ll miss all you blog pals and IFers since I will be quite utterly computerless. I will be back next week with bells on! Ok, maybe not bells. More likely a sketchbook, pencil and scanner, poised and ready to roll. 

In the mean time, I have once again, shamelessly reposted. This time the flying wiener dog, sailing through the air with the greatest of ease.

Close enough, eh? See you all soon!

    It’s a funny one. You really captured the attitude that most wiener dogs have. They are little, funny shaped guys with a great self concept. It’s a great use of the ”sail” theme.

  8. Safe trip to ya.
    I’ll just pop over and glance at the sailing wiener pooch if I get lonely. lol!

    that’s so great. Wiener dogs are kind of cute and grotesque at the same time.

    chuckle* ^_^ I think the ‘wiener’ dog is created when God really wants to eat one..

    sometimes it is good for us to be disconnect from the ‘cable’ world, hope you have a refreshing time out there.. gonna miss your sketch!

  15. Monica Says:

    Ooohh, I LOVE it! Just look at the ears and paws, just perfect as he sails through the sky… What a great drawing, I’m glad you reposted it! 🙂

    This wiener dog reminds me of one of those balloons in the Macy’s Parade. So cute and aerodynamic!

    I wish you safe travels. 🙂
