Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Friday, November 03, 2006


This is my picture for Illustration Friday the theme is smoke. "Smoke" was drawn on a scrap of multi-purpose copy paper with a Faber-Castle 3-H pencil, then inked in with a Gel-Roller and colored in Photoshop.

Tom, the silly bird, thought he could escape the annual massacre by hiding in the icehouse for the holiday season. Now he is a cold turkey.


Cold turkey is also the way I quit smoking and why this illustration is titled "Smoke".

Do you ever act like a silly bird? Do you want to leave me some love?


  • I've missed you Unknown...where have you been? Here's some love for reappearing. here's some more for quitting smoking. And here's even more for being a love propagator.

    Oh yeah, and cute drawing.

  • This is very clever, but I'm not sure how my friend the Pyschic Turkey would take this - he might blow smoke up ring.
