rare as hen’s teeth

October 18, 2009


While gazing at herself in the mirror this morning, Henrietta was frozen with a sense of pride at being one of the rare hens with teeth.
A bit of a stretch perhaps, what with the Illustration Friday’s word of the week being “frozen.” But being a relatively new user of a Wacom tablet and playing around with Photoshop brushes, I redid an older post today. So, being quite lazy, figured heck, why not post this… heh!


What Barney thought was a cool refreshing celery juice, was in fact, a glass of sour rhubarb cocktail… a common mistake in the bunny community.


The Illustration Friday theme for this week is sour.

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Multiple.”

In light of this theme, I think most folks would agree that the ability to multitask is pretty much manditory these days. Other than wearing roller-skates all day long or having your self cloned, eight arms might come in very handy.

Perhaps with these extra appendages or tentacles (for the pedantic,) you could, while designing that logo for your client, also wash the dishes, balance your checkbook and make yourself some lunch. You might even consider picking up a some dumbbells with your suckers and work those flabby biceps.

While your at it, you really have to watch this. Make sure to watch it to the end, because that’s where you will see how amazing octopus really are.

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Backside.”

Oh…hold on…,



Excuse me, I’ve just been informed that Illustration Friday’s theme this week is actually “Backwards.”

So sorry. Well, I hope you won’t mind a little kitty backside in your face. Those of us who have feline roomates experience this on a regular basis. I think you know what I mean.

Anyway, this kitty’s backside is pulling double duty, as it is also the theme of my holiday greeting card for 2007.

“Hats” are Illustration Friday’s theme this week.

I watched “The Prestige” the other night, and felt, a little magic would be a fitting way to illustrate the hat theme. Perhaps, a little reverse prestidigitation might even be in order.

“The Prestige”, by the way, was a pretty good film. It was a dark, mysterious and suspenseful thriller, with great performances by Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale. Michael Caine and Scarlett Johansson also added wonderfully deft support to the complex story. Although it was a tale of magic during Britain’s Victorian age, the film’s true theme unfolded as a very clever and effective study of obsession and it’s inevitable toll.

So, if you like period pieces, sleight of hand and a couple of magicians that are easy on the eyes, you might want to give “The Prestige” a look.

Speaking of magicians, as for all those bunnies out there, who have been pulled out of hats by their tender little bunny ears, here is your revenge, at long last!
