Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Insect (Bush-Fly)

This is my picture for Illustration Friday. The theme is insect. "Insect" was drawn on two scraps of multi-purpose copy paper that I taped together because I ran out of room on the first piece. I did this sketch with a pencil and discovered I couldn't fill it in with my gel roller because the detail was too fine. AAARRRGGG. I colored it and cleaned it up with Photoshop. This illustration took most of my free time today. Leaving me no time to catch up on my blog. Sorry Loves! I know I'm falling behind. I'll catch up this weekend!

Good old GW wants to be a fly on the wall in every home. Quick! Someone get a fly swatter!

Please leave me some love.

P.S. I just made a new Bad Art button if anyone wants to become a Red Hot Lover!
Isn't it cute!

  • my initials used to be GW, but i defected from that persuasion. you are starting a Love Revolution on the web. Keep it up, little exploding skull. you make us love you, you give us no 4711111111 choice.

    (quixotic number inserted by fat black and white cat strolling across keyboard. he's venerable, he must know something.)

    love, naturally.

    By Blogger Genevieve, at 10:38  

  • So LOL funny, love the artwork here to, and yes, he looks like he needs to be swatted a little, wouldn't kill him though, he could come in handy.

    By Blogger HARDWAX, at 10:52  

  • johnnynorms: Wee hee! Thanks!

    melanie: :-)

    valgalart: (blush) That's nothing you should see the skull it's in!

    teri c: :-)

    draconas: Thanks!

    andrea edwards: (blush)

    andrea: No where to go but up. :-)

    2danimator: Thanks! :-)

    merlinprincesse: They are already watching me. Why not do something to keep them busy!

    saul iscariot: If only he would stop listening to the voices in his head.

    caroline: Not as bad as his normal black beady little eyes.

    modroom: Ha! Thanks. I don't know Blair much.

    katili: Love!

    amanda grazini: Ditto. Why did you leave me a cat butt? (*)

    taittems: (blush) OH! That would have been good! A big fly swatter!

    shano: They love me at the Pentagon.

    isay: Bah! You caught me. I tried several times to get the second wing in there and it just didn't look right. So, I decide the second wing is at just such an angle that we can't see it. Or, Cheney pulled it off.

    natalialove: :-) Boo! Thanks!

    genevieve: A Love revolution! I hope so! Thanks Love. Always listen to the cats. They for sure know something we don't. :-)

    hardwax: Thanks. I bet he likes to get swatted a little. :-)

    By Blogger georg, at 16:58  

  • And here I thought, in recent years, all the funny clicking on my phone was aliens communicating with me in secret code… I was wrong; it was G-flies compiling X-files! No thanks for destroying my delusions, but thanks for opening our eyelids. Much love. Lily.

    By Anonymous Marie, at 17:53  

  • One Presidential Fly on a Wall is far to inneficient. You need a swarm. Of course, you need to make some Laura & Barbara Bush-flies so they can breed...

    By Blogger Tony LaRocca, at 20:08  

  • Wow, can I smack GW? Please? Ha! Nice work!

    By Blogger Si-Guy, at 20:13

  • dear unknown! really funny! now I understand the world of Bush a little better - he simply sees another world (with the fly-eyes)! I only wonder: what about Airforce One? Couldn't he use his wings??
    thank for leaving a comment - love from Denmark

    By Blogger georg, at 15:58  

  • Very clever idea!

    By Blogger Bron Smith, at 20:47

    By Blogger Andrea, at 10:47  

  • that was the one and only GW insect that I saw at IF. So many comments... so little space... ;-)

    By Blogger AscenderRisesAbove, at 21:25  

  • georg: Thanks. Ole Bush only has one wing because Cheney pulled off the other one. That is why Bush still uses Air Force One. That and it makes him feel like Harrison Ford.

    bron smith: :-) Thanks,

    paula: Thanks Love. :-)

    tony: Ha! Thanks!

    big a: Thanks. I only got through the first 450 or so. How far did you get?
