Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, April 07, 2006


This is my picture for Illustration Friday, the theme is speed. "Speed" was drawn on the back of a list of things I'm supposed to get done today. Because of my list I decided to use speed as the theme as well as my drawing technique. So, I drew the illustration in under a minute then spent two minutes coloring the image in Photoshop.

In the future fast food will be genetically altered to run away. This will help to fight obesity in America.

There you have it. My speedy, speed illustration.

How fast can you leave some love?


  • How's #1 for fast love! Love the fast food take on this. Although, sometimes it is not that fast, especially at lunch time in Northern Virginia. Much love!

    By Blogger Lou, at 16:11  

  • Oh I love this! It makes me hungry.
    They both look so greasy and frightened, they better keep running!


    By Blogger ., at 16:20  

  • Double meaning: Of course there's the whole "fast food" take (which is good), but I do believe that fast food gets its name, not from the speed that it is prepared, but the speed at which it passes through our system /:-P

    By Blogger Don, at 16:43  

  • Well...#4's pretty fast for love,

    By Blogger Janet, at 17:13  

  • That is funny.
    I like it.

  • I absolutely promise NOT to eat any fast food. Nice quick illustration.

    By Blogger Robert McLaughlin, at 19:25  

  • Don't worry--I'll gladly pass on the burger. Nice speedy job here.

    By Blogger steve, at 20:38

  • nice illo its nice and simple it makes me feel like i dont want to eat fast food agian but im probably going to do it anyway

    By Blogger SQUIRRELS, at 21:25  

  • jocelyn: Oops. :-)

    squirrels: Sometimes it can't be avoided eh?

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 21:59  

  • You can do this in few minutes? Amazing! Love the drawing and the message.

    By Anonymous Paula, at 00:17  

  • What a great picture! I giggled out loud at the "fast food". Too bad I'm a vegetarian, or I'd grabbed myself some fast food when I go downtown today. But then again, I enjoyed your fast food much better anyway :)

    By Anonymous carra, at 02:53  

  • HAHAHA! No matter how fast you run, I'm GOING TO EAT YOU!

    By Blogger marina, at 03:00  

  • i am the slowest one as usual. they don't have to run from me. it seems like ages since i had last tasted them.

    By Blogger isay, at 03:02  

  • These guys truly have a problem. Must be some nonhuman pursuer.

    Back at the drive in theater, the little drinks, candy bars, burgers and dogs would sing and dance.

    La La come and eat us, La La come and eat us. La La we are so happy you came. La La eat some more.

    Now this is different, true fear.

    The other day when Babe and I had a burger it was, Hows ya mom, Have a nice one, La La ya want fries with that. La La!


    By Blogger scarecrow, at 05:23  

  • Hahaaha- great idea/illustration!
    Looks like McD's with the red fry box? The fries that McD's claimed were "vegetarian" were revealed to contain BEEF FLAVORING! Greasy corporate ethics.

    By Blogger AndyDoodler, at 08:00  

  • The message is a good one. Next you should post photos of sushi and other slow food saying 'eat me'.


    By Blogger andrea, at 08:22  

  • Hello,
    I'm late,I'm terribly late!
    I love,I love,I don't love speed!
    I love French food!
    And I love you!

  • If I eat them will I get get skinny legs and arms? Maybe the knobbly knees would fit into the curves of my double bass quite well.
    You always put a smile on my face. Love your work Zoe

    By Blogger a nice day out, at 19:21  

  • Speedy junk food might be a good idea, to get them you should run fast and burn calories before eating. LOL

    By Blogger Katili, at 01:12  

  • mmmm. So what did you have for lunch on this day? Tofu?


    By Blogger Joy Eliz, at 04:14  

  • oh how unique fast food, fast draw, fast paint, gotta run!

    By Blogger Toni, at 04:54  

  • Super Love, right here! Great illo dear.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 07:24  

  • very speedy

    speed love

    By Blogger Caroline, at 09:19  

  • Good idea!! If only they could run

    By Blogger the heartful blogger, at 11:32  

  • Really fast food, it's so funny !!

    By Blogger Rowantree, at 12:37  

  • I think I could eat them a lot faster than you drew them, and wow, you were fast! Too funny!

    By Blogger HARDWAX, at 12:46  

  • paula: Thanks. Now if I could just learn to take my time.

    carra: Yeah, me too (vegan). Although, they are getting a lot better at making vegan fast food and even that is still horrible for you.

    marina: Yep. There is always someone faster. :-)

    isay: Slow is a good speed. You notice more. :-)

    scarecrow: Ahh yes... I remember those. It was like a little candy parade and the popcorn was the leader.
    Now when you say "Babe" do you mean a significant other or Babe the pig. Because if it's Babe the pig that would be a little sad to go have bugers with him and then ask how his mother is. I guess it's OK as long as it's not a bacon cheesburger. That would be just wrong.

    Like a pig pulling a cart load of sausages. I'm drawing my own conclusions.

    andydoodler: Well, what's a little beef fat among friends. Pretty gross. :-)

    andrea: Ha! Yeah, except for the sushi. I love the little fishes of the sea too.

    marc: Ha! It's never too late. :-)

    crosshatched: :-)

    mikepflaumart: Ha, ha! Ewwwww... :-)

    irvine: Heh, heh. You were so fast you posted twice!
    I once had a beef tounge burger.

    a nice day out: actually you would get the opposite. :-)
    Thanks Love.

    katili: Exactly! :-)

    joy eliz: NO. I had a no cheese, vegan pizza. I know, I know a pizza without cheese is just toast with sauce, but you have never had my special homemade vegan pizza! :-)

    toni kelly: Ha! :-)

    andrea: Thanks!

    caroline: :-)

    tammy hanna: Only a few years in the future Love.

    rowantree: Thanks.
    I'm glad people think it's funny because I think the illo itself is pretty bad.

    hardwax: heh, heh. Thanks.

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 13:23  

  • I can leave my comments pretty quickly...let's just hope I don't have any typos!

    Fun illustration...and, great that you did this in three minutes!! It takes me HOURS because I just am never happy with what I draw! Anyway...great job!!

    By Blogger TXArtcGal, at 17:08  

  • txartcgal: Eek. I fear typos too!
    I'm rarely happy with my illos, but I wanted to do something speedy this time. So I just went for it. :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 17:17  

  • starving hungry now - how inconsiderate can you get!

    By Blogger disappointed, at 17:30  

  • Fast food built for speed. Great idea!

    By Blogger mbc, at 19:07  

  • Okay, this is just surreal...

    By Blogger Chuang Shyue Chou, at 19:28  

  • a little slow on the love factor but luuuuurve this nonetheless, your writing is fularious and I did your illustratin'!

    By Blogger stp-illustrations, at 02:18  

  • I like how you put fast food as speed!! Clever you are!

    By Blogger Tongue in Cheek Antiques, at 02:19  

  • That is a very determined lunch combo. Drawing is fabulous, and the genetically modified running food bit you wrote is hilarious! Beauty!

    By Blogger Dan, at 06:21  

  • I do love your humor...this food is very fast indeed...I see you're vegan, which means if you were to eat this fast food (I am assuming it's a hamburger and lard-fried french fries), you'd probably get a bad case of the runs... Well, they're safe from me too! I'll take a nice, slow salad any day:> Love:>

    By Blogger carla, at 08:52  

  • I love how the burger is ahead of the fries. I always thought a burger could out pace a medium fry. Love the two legged hop run the burger is employing to gain maximum forward velocity. But no matter how fast those dudes run I am always able to catch them. Love the blue background too!

    By Blogger Large Art, at 10:29  

  • HE ! HE!! THis is funny!! Love the running fooooD!!

    By Blogger Alina Chau, at 11:05  

  • Either the food needs to run or America does! Great illo!

    By Anonymous creativekismet, at 13:12  

  • As always, Love, you are right… slow food is so much nicer and it taste better. Much love.

    By Blogger albina, at 13:28  

  • bubblegum: How do you think I felt drawing it. That's why I did it so quick. I had to go eat. :-P

    mbc: Thanks.

    chuang shyue chou: No! It is the wave of the future! The next great dieting craze!

    aimhleas: Love works at all speeds. :-)
    What? You did my drawing?

    aimhleas: Oh. :-P

    marie: :-)

    catnapping: Heh, heh. Not many that can out run me but a few I let get away. :-)

    stp-illustrations: Thanks. :-)

    tongue in cheek antiques: Thanks.
    "Clever you are." You talk like Yoda! :-)

    dan: Har! Thanks.

    carla: Thanks.
    I may be vegan but I still love junk food. :-)

    large art: Heh, heh. Thanks.
    After I finished the drawing I thought it looked like the burger just tripped and is about to bring down the fries with him. :-P

    alina chau: :-) Thanks.

    creativekismet: Ha! Good point! :-)

    albina: Heh, heh. Thanks. :-)

    these guys have such thin legs from running away. love the idea to fight obesity in america this way too.
    i guess it will involve a little genetic altering huh?
    very very fun!

    By Blogger Roz Foster, at 15:01  

  • What a useful notion! It certainly would help weak-willed dieters, wouldn't it? Great illustration as always!

    By Blogger Aravis, at 16:03  

  • susan: I make it a policy now not to eat food I couldn't catch on my own.
    Thank God/dess Baked Lays move slowly.

    francoise: :-)

    modroom: Ha! That's the name they should put on the menu! :-)

    roz foster: Heh, heh. :-)

    aravis: Maybe?

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 00:41  

  • HA! You are flipping hilarious. Fast food and speed. Fabulous and I love the future diet program. You Rock.

    By Anonymous Detlef, at 19:15  

  • Love it. Great take on the concept word. I beleive one of McDonald's first character was a guy with a bun head named Speedy. I remember years ago receiving a Speedy mug for something I did when I worked at McDonald's.

    By Blogger IdiotHead, at 20:06  

  • Oops! Forgot to leave the love.



    By Blogger IdiotHead, at 20:08

    By Blogger Bron Smith, at 23:27  

  • tiffinix: Har. (blush) Thanks.

    idiothead: That sounds familiar. When I was four we lived right across the street from a McDonanlds. Seriously right out the front door.

    idiothead: Ah, but you didn't forget because here you are. :-)

    bron smith: Heh, heh... Ewww. :-)

    By Blogger The Unknown, at 00:28  

  • I think the fast food is too fat to run away quickly enough for most Americans. I love your idea and interpretation.

    By Blogger ottoblotto, at 03:29
