Illustration Friday ' ALONE '



Illustration Friday has reared it's creative head again and brought with it the concept of ' ALONE '. Now most artists are alone anyway due to the fact that this tends to be a labor intensive calling and requires a lotta concentration, this usually discourages the happenstance of constant interruptions. In other words, Do Not Disturb.
Kinda rude, but we are a strange breed: the 'sittus on my tuckas and scribble for many moons'. No wonder some people want to smack us good and hard...
Anyway. Here he is. GOONSBERG's only Tax-Collector. Pretty hard job, and I bet he would really luv to be alone right now !
By the way, April 15 is zooming up awfully fast and ya gotta make sure yer taxes are in by then, or else I'll send a beastie to your clean door-step to annoy you ( so you can't draw and will have do your taxes ) I'm undecided on which 'monster under the bed' to send to delinquent filers: either a big hairy SNUFFLER who smells like old socks, or a long scaley SCRITCHER who grabs your ankles when you try to walk away...
Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh this is so funny and you're so early. I mailed my income tax TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Can I have a beastie anyway? Please? The Snuffler sounds fun but not the Scritcher.

Of course you can have a Snuffler, Janey! His name will be GRONCHER, and he will have teeth the size of jumbo crayons (but will be as soft as marshmallows). He likes the crust from sandwiches and dustbunnies dipped in milk. He'll be your best pal and will find that missing tennis ball you lost 2 years ago (although it's gonna look kinda dingy). And when you look under your bed, you'll see his big yellow googly eyes staring back at you (try not to shriek at him, he cries easily).
:-D

Hi Jemal ! Maybe he needs a classy car to win people over (although they might be shallow if cars are their only interest). Good news on your taxes !

Dunno which I like more: illustration or explanation ;) Funny funny stuff. Oh the real tears of laughter are in the details. I've looked at this quite a few times now and each time it brings a smile to my face :) (I did my taxes a long time ago)
