Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Saturday, November 11, 2006


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is clear. "Clear" was drawn on a piece of multi-purpose copy paper with a Faber-Castle 3-H Pencil and then inked in with my Gel-Roller. I drew this illustration in about an hour. I had the idea early on Friday morning, but I didn’t get a chance to sit down and draw until tonight.

I guess I had the recent mid-term elections on my mind when I got this idea, so it probably won't make any sense unless you live in the states. If you don’t get the joke just leave me some love and tell me what a pretty donkey that is.

Yes, it's a donkey.

A brief interlude... I had trouble sleeping last night, so I colored my illustration. Cool huh? Which version do you like better?

Did you vote in the last election? Do you want to leave me some love?

  • I did vote, however, living in Georgia renders my vote useless.

    Always a treat to see your work.

  • I think all Canadians cast their (ineffective) ballot. We're all pleased, I think.

  • nice picture. i've got to chime in with the majority--the color looks fabu.

    i also wanted to share with you my friend greg's v-card quote he's got going at the end of every email these days. it says:

    Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country, too.

    thought you'd enjoy.
