Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, November 18, 2005


This is my Illustration Friday picture. The theme is free. The fingers, faces and curtains are the only things I didn't do with Photoshop. This is a picture of my stepbrother Bill and me when we were both twelve years old. We are watching my Mother and Step Dad Ed drive away. Ed was kind of an oppressive jerk so whenever Bill and I were left alone in the house we would wait until my parents left then we would do a little dance and sing this song.

Ed is gone, Ed is gone
That is why I sing this song
I'm free at last, I'm free, free, free
Tee hee, tee hee, I am free

Years later I found out my Mother often heard us singing as they left. I felt bad and was kind of embarrassed when she told me that. Although, when she finally divorced that bastard Ed I think she did a little dance and sang our song.

Ed is gone, Ed is gone

That is why I sing this song
I'm free at last, I'm free, free, free
Tee hee, tee hee, I am free

Do you love my song? Will you love me at least three times a week?


  • Can you tell which one is me?

  • Three times a week? You should be so lucky. (My husband should be so lucky, too.) Very minimalist. Love.

  • Unknown is gone, Unknown is gone
    That is why I sing this song

  • Nice story, the part about your Mam singing it when she got divorced was sweet. Nice pic aswell.

  • I'm sure many of us can relate to this. Not sure that we sang such a cute song tho.

    By Blogger Teri C, at 09:00  

  • Minimalist art at its best. I felt the same way when my mother's husband left--but I didn't have a cute song. Great job.

    kill that boy
    time to destroy

  • You sure weren't feeling the love when Ed was around, but you're feeling it now! I love those peeking eyes, the hand holding back the curtain, and the lyrics. The fact that you felt bad when your mother told you she heard the song shows that you're a lover; not a fighter. Good job:>

  • Oh great-I'll be singing that all night. This is quite funny in a good twisted way (emphasizing the "good" here). Really! Love

    By Blogger Holly, at 16:39  

  • three times a week? hmmmm i was expecting more from a gangly guy like you...

    oh...and you're the one with the blue eyes (before Ed heard your song and threw the tomato at your head).

    By Blogger The Crafty-Girl™, at 19:24  

  • I think the crafty girl must have got that right... love

    By Blogger Caroline, at 11:36  

  • Hi unknown:
    I am glad you share with us some story from your past. You are not alone. Yes, why some people are not cool to share some love? But now you can see, we all love you!!

  • Fun illo!

    By Blogger Alina Chau, at 22:55  

  • saul iscariot: Sweet? Hmm... Thanks.

    teri c: OOO haven't seen you in a while love. Thanks love!

    tony: Am I the only one that sang?

    redt0pmedusa: Umm... Where did you bury the body?

    carla: Thanks. I am indeed a lover not a fighter.

    holly: Thank you for seeing it as twisted. I thought it was just me.

    crafty-girl: Gangly?! Yes I am. Tomatoe is too soft. Did you send my prize yet?

    caroline: Yep, yep!

    tiffany: WOW! Thanks! Nice of you to speak for everyone! (wink)

    alina chau: Thanks :-) What is that your choking?

  • I meant to leave a comment last week but a busy life got in the way.
    wanted to let you know I love this illo.
    It made me laugh but still felt bad you had to go through Ed's meanness.

    By Blogger Toni, at 03:28  

  • jaimie: Wee Hee Thanks! :-)

    toni kelly: Thanks love. What ever doesn't kill me makes me stronger! BWHAAAAhahahahah... ahem.
