Illustration Friday - INSECT



No time for anything time-consuming, so a quickie in my sketchbook for my three-year old Xavier, who loves this song.

Very humorous! The neat lines remind me of Sempe, whom I really adore...

I also like this piece a lot! The line work is very nice. Very simple however effective! Looks like the Old gal is going to get an early dinner! 

I love how deeply she is snuggled into her easy chair. She was probably hungry, and TOO tired to get up and make a pastrami sandwich. Where should I go to see how you did that neat mouse-over b/w to color business? Wonderful.

My boys think that song is hilarious too. No thanks to dear husband though, it MUST to be sung a particular way. I love the quick drawings we do for our kids. Excellent take.

Ah, a childhood favorite, "I Know An Old Lady." Great linework, Julie!

There was an old lady who lived in a shoe, which reminds me of a time I went to church as a young boy and there was a roach in my shoe, and I felt it moving all through church, and when I came home I took off the shoe and the roach crawled out, which makes me wonder if roaches eat flies or vice versa or neither?

Miragee, I didn't know Sempe's work and 'googled' him - great discovery, and what a compliment - thank you.
Sultry painterwoman I've e-mailed you.
Thank you all for being so nice about this little sketch.
