Illustration Friday - Garden

This illustration is older than dirt and hasn't seen the light of day in several years. I did this for some friends that were starting a landscaping business. I never thought it could have another use until voilĂ ! Illustration Friday gave me the excuse to post this odd little drawing. I think I did a good job of capturing the face of horticulture horror.

Woo-hoo, a "new" post! Those puns you wrote gave me indigestion. You picked a good, albeit ancient illo for Illustration Friday. It's funny and scary at the same time. I look forward to reading your comment about my latest post;)

I'd love to see this with a surprise third party, namely the insecticide man coming down to reign terror on the dandelion!

You said "older than dirt". Heh heh.

The expression on the weed...awesome! Looks like the things taking over my front yard! Very good illustration!!!

They must be white pansies - afraid of the big old dandy lion. Run, run, run for your life!

Boy you have a great style.

Maybe you can post just a small section of your Mother Hubbard and gator illos so your other fans can get a taste of some of the best work you've ever done. It would be a pity to make them wait a year or two until those books get published (figers crossed...)

Oops! I meant to say, "fingers crossed" in my previous comment. What the heck is a figer? A tiger crossed with a ferret? (I think that's how you spell "ferret" right?) Maybe your next book should be called, "The Famous Adventures of the Friendly Figer." I'd buy multiple copies of THAT book! OK, going to bed now. Brain turning to mush...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
