Hot Chicks!

September 15, 2014

Hot chicks new2 450So, I think I can safely say that today, I was one hot chick!

Anything over 75 degrees is too hot for me. So let’s just say today’s weather topping off at 109 really ruffled my feathers!

I don’t want to count my chickens before they’re hatched, but IS IT FALL YET?!!

Ants In My Pants!

September 12, 2014

ant in pants final 450

EXCUSE ME, BUT I DO BELIEVE AN ANT’S IN MY PANTS!

There is an excellent chance that a situation such as this could cause a wee bit of anxiety and might even make a person feel, ahem, well… darn right antsy.

So one must remember to remain calm. You see, the attention span of an ant is quite short so feigning nonchalance is best. In roughly 10 to 15 minutes the novelty of wearing  your jeans will have warn off. The bored ant will soon run along to find spilt milk or some sugar to walk through.

Possession of your pants and your sanity, regained!

Maybe.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Reworked an old bit of silliness in honor of the ant trails now taking over our home. They might as well be giant, as intrusive as they are.

Oh well, at least the flies (Amityville Horror) are gone.

Bugs, eh? So rude!

Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

wolf in sheeps clothing 450Sheila finally solved the mystery of that wet dog smell in her closet.

Felt like it was time for a nice animal idiom.

“Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing:
One would use this idiom to describe a person or thing appearing to be good but is, well, not so much. There seems to be a few different ideas about it’s origin, but here is what Wikipedia has to say about it.

SkADaMo 2013 Day 22

Counting Sheep

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

So, I seem to be continuing on a bedtime theme here. It’s wishful thinking, no doubt. This chilly weather puts me in a mood to kick off my cloven sheep slippers and curl up in bed with a good book.

Ah, but I have sketches to catch up on! Missed another two days. Oh for shame! But wait, that’s right, there are no rules. No harm done!

Anyhoo, stop on over here and let’s see how the other SkADaMo participants have been doing.

“Hot Dogging”

Well the only thing about Boswell that’s hot dogging is his tubular physique. He’s much more familiar with the snow plow than any sort of shredding.

Why not schuss on over here to check out my fellow SkADaMoers at work.

“Hot Chicks”

A little rougher sketch today. Probably so I can hurry and run to the window to stare at the rain. We finally got some of that ole precipitation today! I’m feeling rather hydrated and very energized.

But memories of the long, hot summer still haunt me. So much so I remembered an old drawing I did a few years ago depicting the heat and redrew it.

So here are some hot, hot chicks for your animal idiom pleasure. Of course, last time I posted these hot chicks, I got some… shall we say… interesting hits on my blog.

Go figure.

So for some hot, hot sketches go here and check out what my fellow SkADaMoers are doing today.

high horse 450

Whoops, missed a day! I guess I’m was just a little low “energy”. So don’t get all up on your “High Horse” about it!

Get it? High horse… I was late… and you’re…

It’s funny, trust me.

Cornball jokes aside, why not cruise on by here and check my fellow SkADaMoers!

Just wanted to mention that I seem to be keeping up with PiBoIdMo, a picturebook idea a day so far! Nothing earth-shattering yet, but some fun ideas to riff off of and those daily post on Tara’s blog, “Writing for Kids (While Raising Them) are so inspiring and fun to read!

Also, I tried to slip in a reason to post to Illustration Friday this week, where the word of the week is “energy.”
