IF: drifting

June 23, 2009


SHEEP SLEEP (or Counting Peeps)

Sheila Sheepington-Fleecewater,
found it hard to sleep well.

So she sipped a bit of sweet water,Β 
while she counted people.


The Illustration Friday theme lends itself to quite a few images this week. However, what immediately comes to my mind is the trouble “drifting” off to sleep insomnia often gives me, as my alter-ego Sheila demonstrates above. (Plus, I wanted another excuse to draw sheep shoes.)

  28. Hello, I am writing an article on insomnia from Chinese Medicine perspective – I was wondering if I might get permission to use your sheep counting people cartoon with the article… I love it… and if you say yes – How should it be credited?

    Thanks so much – I’m glad I discovered your blog – great work

  29. Hahahaha! Oh, I KNEW it. I knew I’d get such a kick and a giggle when I came here. You do not disappoint. Ever.

    Thank you so much for your hugs and sweet words earlier this summer. It meant a lot to me. I’m sorry it’s taken me a while to come here, but I certainly did not forget. Thank you for the solace and the strength. Thank you for your friendship.
