1251. Illustration Friday - "Opinion"

©Kathleen Rietz
To the others, Larry Lobster and Susie Starfish were nothing but "bottom feeders", but their opinions of each other were all that mattered to them.

1252. some might say

Right guys, I promise, I PROMISE, this is the last you'll see of this drawing. I have no choice in the matter anyway, the the doodles are the only thing holding the paper together. It's falling to pieces, but still, at least I feel better about it than I did a while back.

I have noticed that Illustration Friday's theme this week is 'Opinion'. So, as I finished this yesterday, I'm calling this my contribution. Some might say I should have given up on this drawing a long time ago. But I'm of the opinion, I mean the naughty kid who drew on desk is of the opinion, that it's better to burn out than fade away. Me and this drawing. Totally burnt out.

So, that's it. I'm calling this one Done. Finished. Finito. Doneski.

1254. Illustration Friday: Opinion

"Good manners are a combination of intelligence, education, taste and style mixed together so that you don't need any of those things." -P.J. O'Rourke, Modern Manners, 1984

For I.F. this week, here is one of my new little paintings, with an opinion to go with it.

In the middle of moving house I haven't had time to draw, so here's a piece I did for Illustration Friday a few weeks back.

1258. Illustration Friday : Pretend

Other kids say I'm just pretending,
But crime is never ending.
The kingpin keeps on sending
his goons and I have quite a many
to fight and protect this city.
- So you can sit there and look all pretty,

but I'm going to fight -

and continue on with my pretending.

1263. Illustration Friday: "Wise"

Forgive me for resurrecting a picture posted a long while back, but I knew I wouldn't have time to explore something new this week. It's not the most original interpretation of the word - I'm guessing there will be a number of owls posted this week. But it is one of my favorite drawings and it's always fun to see how everyone can approach the same subject in different ways.

At one point, I xeroxed the drawing and colorized it with watercolors to see how that would look (yes - I'm that low-tech). The result is below.

1265. Illustration Friday -- Vacant

His bowl was empty. Poor little bear.

My portfolio is getting a little bear heavy. I just can't seem to resist. I need a bear project to work on (hint, hint). We're thinking of getting a dog. Am I crazy?

1266. IF: Vacant

I know this illustration looks somehow irrelevant to this week's subject, "Vacant", but it was the only thing that came into my mind when I thought about the word...


PS - Am a bit depressed these days. Forgive the gloomy mood of my artwork. :(

1268. Illustration Friday - "Vacant"

Jerry's mind was vacant and he knew he needed to fill it with the right knowledge and skills so he could get a job and marry Susan.

This is from a series of text book illustrations I made earlier this year. Not very creative, but it helps pay the mortgage.

1269. Illustration Friday: repair

Flowers or a bouquet can repair or help to say "I'm sorry". My submission for Illustration Friday's "repair" theme is a greeting card from my Applesaucey Kids line.

1271. illustration friday - repair

I find that real relationships are in constant need of repair - we all stumble. I have also found that often the best way to repair damage is with a hug.

1272. Illustration Friday: “Repair”

Sometimes the repair guy inadvertently offers a bit of entertainment to his customers.  These two ladies had a chuckle at the expense of their plumber.

1273. Illustration Friday: "Repair"

Okay, I'm cheating a little here. This week, do to limited time, I'm going to take some liberties with the theme. I decided to take an old illustration I did a long time ago for a Halloween party invitation, one that I don't really care for now, and "repair" it. At least it's seasonal, right?

1274. Jungle Friends Elephant illustration

Here's the first in a series of Jungle animals. I'll put it in my shop soon. The elephant needed to be repaired. He had a weird ear problem. Now he's all better.
