Illustration Friday: Climbing

The Wrong Shoes

Joey didn't mean to climb the refrigerator, he just put the wrong shoes on before trying to open it...

Illustration Friday: Pale

Count Hippocula

Hippos look cute and harmless in their chubbiness, but they're actually one of the most aggressive animals in the world! So beware!

Illustration Friday: Contained

Sasha the Snake Houdini

I'm glad I got a chance to draw a snake... As you can see from this drawing and others, I don't really know what to do with my characters' hands, and usually they just end up in pockets. With snakes this problem is elegantly avoided :)
If you have any suggestions and/or references to other hand postures, please let me know. Thanks!

Illustration Friday: Resolve #2

I know it looks like a 5 year old made this drawing. Perhaps it's because I see this issue with a 5 year old's eyes. To me it's very simple: people should not fight. After all, we are smart enough to convey complex thoughts and ideas with words, so why not use this uniquely human attribute to solve problem -- why not talk instead of resorting to weapons and terror?
I know it's not realistic, but as members of my family either have to seek shelter when the alarm sounds or are sent to fight in Gaza a war that they did not ask for, I hope that in 2009 Israelis and Palestinians would resolve to stop fighting and resolve their issues once and for all through the only possible way: talking.

Illustration Friday: Resolve

For 2009, just like the past 7 years, Georgie resolved to eat more and exercise less.
