Cheese Cake

Even though the challenge from Illustration Friday is 'Cake' I decided to tweak it a little bit and make it 'CheeseCake'.

Just for fun...

This week's Illustration Friday challenge is 'Sorry'. Now, the original title of this cartoon was 'Sympathy' , but sorry and sympathy are pretty close so I'm making a judgement call in favor of the home team. :-D

You would think that with all the super technology we have, cars would be quieter. Nope. Between shoddy mufflers and booming stereos and muttering motors we have a noise pollution problem from our vehicles. Some of it is based on a lack of funds from the car owners to repair chronic noises, that's understandable if you are a starving artist or some such.

But there are a lotta new cars and trucks that almost make your ears bleed from the racket they make. So please, next time you are near a school or hospital or nursing home, turn down the base speakers and slow the growling engine. Do the same in front of my house, too.

Thank you.

Monsters and Angels

" There Is Sugar
And There Is Salt
There Is Ice
And There Is Fire
In Every Single Heart
There Are Monsters And Angels "

-Voice Of The Beehive

I know that this weeks Illustration Friday challenge is 'Angels and Devils' but I just had to use the song title 'Monsters and Angels' from the kewl band 'Voice of the Beehive'. Seems fitting for this subject. It's awesome music for an awesome Illo Friday, thank you Penelope !

I've been itching to use these sketches for years !

Today's Illustration Friday challenge is 'Fat'.

For those of you who are aware of the Cthulhu mythos, you have undoubtedly recognized Y'golonac, the Great Old One mentioned infamously in the horrid Revelations of Glaaki volume 12. He is large and in charge. Here is just one quote from this dark book:

"...for even the minions of Cthulhu dare not speak of Y'golonac; yet the time will come when Y'golonac strides forth from the loneliness of Aeons to walk once more among men..."

I found this photo in a National Geographic book many years ago.

Then I drew this sketch.

After which I used tracing paper to combine the two.
Neat huh !
Oh, just before you is another quote (I have several more but they are too long to type at this moment) from the dreaded Revelations of Glaaki volume 12:

"When he who passes in Darkness comes again, the wall shall shake. The illusion shall crumble and man, cringing in terror, shall destroy himself rather than face the gods in battle."

Sweet dreams !

Corner 48

Hmmmm. Wait. Stop. Think.

I've been here before.
I've had a bad day.
How do I stop this madness once and for all...?
