Illustration Friday - pretend

Sometimes I pretend this is me, and I can run really fast and catch gazelles for lunch. Even though I'm crying.

  2. It looks like you are getting ready to run. Do the tears impede your vision?

  9. There is something very Dalhi-esque about it...like his paintings of flaming giraffes.

  21. came to check out your birds on a wire - holy moley! those are some great photos.
    I don't have a flickr account; does it take up a lot of time? Are you worried about copyrights there? Inquiring minds want to know...

  22. ps who would know that texas would have so many birds congregating in one place!

    ReplyDelete
  23. what kind of a creature is that??!?

    seems like a cross between a cheetah and a giraffe... and a man... forgot the face... :P

    i like the single line for the body... and gazelles for lunch... yummy... :)

  26. Extraordinary.....and sad. And weird and happy, too. (I've often wanted to be a gazelle, so please don't eat me for lunch)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Rest easy, I do not have my tree up yet.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've heard gazelle is good with garlic and white wine sauce!

    I dig this piece a lot. It's quite mesmerizing to me.

  36. sometimes pretending is good.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Willie, this is genious! I love it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. that sounds fun, hopefully the being a gazelle chaser, cancels out the crying. I'd like to be a bunny rabbit at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I wasn't aware of the existence of crying hyenas. The streaming tears would make hunting difficult!
    Very Lewis Carrollesque.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I always fall for tears, especially the streaming kind. Hope that red eye is not because of conjunctivitis. If it is, please cry on the opposite corner. (heh)
