Illustration Friday - Sticky

This is what life looks like from the point of view of a packet of ketchup that has been stepped on. Which by the way, is very STICKY.

  1. Literate ketchup would say "been down so long it looks like up to me."

    Hey, are you and Dave MacIntyre in some sort of ketchup cabal?

    Great POV, WB!

  6. Murder. What a horrid scene. Shocking and graphic. I clutch my chest and cry out, "The death. The carnage. Ah, humanity!"

  7. I suppose the answer is: everything is small and thank God that dreadful burger with his yucky salad, too! Oh, there was no question. Well... (a good linework always awakens words in me)

  9. so mustard and mayo packets have a similar view looking up from the heights they have fallen from? this a great idea and a wondeful angle on it all

    How could the ketchup see its self?

  13. Such a pretty mess.

    ReplyDelete
  14. The ketchup can see itself because it is having an out of packet experience.

    ReplyDelete
  15. what a unique perspective!

  20. What a unique point of view. I'll never look at catsap packs the same way again.

  32. Very unique perpective Dubya-Bee.

    So is the Ketchup packet looking towards fast food heaven? I thought I spotted a heavenly milkshake looking down on it, telling it to "come to the light."

    PS: I think McNuggets get stuck in limbo by default.

  33. unique perspective^ sorry, I missed an S apparently. :/

    ReplyDelete
  34. woooo hooo - nice work. i never would have considered this perspective on the topic. it's very intriguing and quite unique.

    ReplyDelete
  35. nice perspective.
    :-)

    p.s. My word for sticky ketchup on the floor is crudsup.(as well as the stuff around the cap when you don't wash the bottle)

  36. Condiment package life. Months (sometimes years) of listless boredom, then - sudden, rupturous death at the hands of a patron or the foot of a passerby. We must all take a moment and reflect upon the injustices and incongruities of existence.

  38. Willie!
    What are you doing down there on the floor next to the ketchup packet?
    Looking up girls skirts again Willie?

    ReplyDelete

  40. RIP Fancy Ketchup. You'll be missed.

  41. How existentialist of you, Willie. A rather weighty treatment of this week's topic, I'd say.

    This reminds me of one of Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books (my kids love the series) where George and Harold put packets of ketchup under toilet seats and when someone sits down they burst all over the place making a big ketchuppy mess, this is called making "squishies".

    Nice drawing, a very original point of view (pun intended) I like the ripe-to-burstingness quality of the tomato on the packet.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Beautiful perspective and I never thought i'd feel sorry for a packet of squished and sticky catsup-but i do. Wow, unique take on the theme-love it!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Very nice!! I feel sorry for the ketchup too. Awwww poor ketchup! Nice drawing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Awesome perspective! Your style is so cool.

    ReplyDelete

  46. I love the perspective in this. Fabulous!

    Happy IF!

  47. Loving it!

    Here in southern Africa ketchup is known as "tomato sauce". It took me several nasty pasta sauce cooking experiences to figure out that it wasn't the same product I knew back in the US.

    ReplyDelete
  48. up at me does!

    i love it. :) so stark and alone and... sticky.

    dried cat-sup is effing HARD to remove.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
