Illustration Friday...My 2nd first attempt.

In a former life I was really bad to technology. Insulting video machines, doubting calculators, kicking small robots and getting into arguments with Speak and Spells. This is what I assume anyway, its all that can explain why in this life technology hates me. Sorry technology. Sorry.

Technology's last jab at me came when it seemed to post my last illustration for the Illustration Friday blog but in fact it didn't. You bastard technology.

So here is my second first submission to Illustration Friday......MUDDY

My first thought was Mudskippers but I figured that it may be quite popular and I wanted to keep away from pigs and hippos. Our sink has been playing up a bit this week so the inspiration probably came from the clogged drain.....I just hope its mud.
I didn't really have a lot of time this week so knocked it out pretty quick which kind of shows but it was a good little experiment for me in regards to mixing water colour and pencil (which is what I did it in) my scanner also didn't do me any favors. Damn you technology. Damn you.........nothing is ever my fault of course.


  1. I think this is a really good idea - I like it. Hope the technology starts behaving itself soon :)

  2. Thanks Susan. I can either learn how to upload things and maybe take a few classes in an illustrator package or take a hammer to everything. The thing is I already have a hammer.

  3. Lol, I usually use the hammer approach too. Thanks for your comment on my illo too. Looking forward to tomorrow's now :)
