Cloud series, number 11.
Here is pig, hiding behind a condo. Pig sees horse floating by. Pig pinches his fingers together muttering “I crush your head, horse.”
Cloud series, part 10. With the “Cloud 9″ pun safely behind us, it is time for a lighter image.
What appears to be a fanciful fishing lure has somehow come to life and is pursuing a frog-lobster-love-child wearing an OSHA approved flotation device. Why, you ask? It is one of life’s great mysteries.
Cloud series, part 9. I’m so glad that I’ve gotten this far in the series. I guess you could say that I’m, uh, on … um, cloud nine. Okay, moving right along!
It is common knowledge that when Frogzilla finally awakens and comes waltzing across the Texas countryside, his first target is going to be a La Quinta.
Cloud series, number 7.
I confess that I find this image to be both beautiful and terrifying. Here we see a familiar scene from the Herringian myth-cycle. Lupatti, the demi-god of good listening being birthed from the nose of the starry-eyed Rambleshab. Rambleshab, of course, is the titanic bearded goose upon whom rests the foundation of the sky and sea. At the end of the world, Rambleshabs gastronomic collapse will cause the sea and the sky to exchange places leaving only flying fish unaffected. Until then, he floats on the gentle breezes and births semi-useful demi-gods now and then. Also according to Herringian mythology, Lupatti is a bit of a twit.
Clouds. Part seven.
As soon as I saw the vulture and fish I stopped. I probably could have worked a gorilla face or cookie monster into the background, but I liked the simplicity and power of the drawing as is. This could be the national symbol of The Republic of Herringia. I’m quite surprised it isn’t.
Clouds. Part six.
A happier image today. A man sings a song. We’re going to go with the idea that it is a happy song that he enjoys singing. In the far distance, a sphinx is thinking about the meal it will cook and laughing, presumably at the idea of parsnips. There aren’t any vegetables as funny as parsnips.
Okay. Today is part five of the Cloud series. If you don’t know what is going on, go back to my earlier posts and read up. I’m sick of carrying you people.
By now I’m realizing that this exercise is probably more of a window into my mind than is healthy for me or you. However, I’ve already started and cannot quit now. So there’s a person. Is it a man, a woman? Hard to tell, we’re getting mixed signals. The person deffinitely seems to be consuming a hot beverage which for our purposes will be coffee. Meanwhile a great worm is devouring this person. A minor worm perches on the person’s arm, neither devouring the person nor preventing their ingestion. I think the tragedy of this story is in the minor worm’s lack of action. Either eat the guy/gal or save them you morally tepid worm!
Wow. We are already to part four of the Cloud series. [Wherein I photograph clouds, print them out, and draw what I see in them, blah, blah...]
In this amazing look into Karl’s damaged psyche, we see a sea horse floating above the rooftops. Contextually, we have to assume the cow is therefore a sea cow, but what is this other sea creature? A large nosed sea bandicoot? A sea monkey whose owner put the bowl too close to the microwave causing radiation to give him Gamma Ray Powers? The mind boggles.
Part three of a series of cloud drawings.
In this fine drawing, I’ve represented a squid who tries to prevent a whale from catching a baseball. Meanwhile, Jim runs toward them with his balloon. This probably means something.
This is my second in a series of cloud drawings. I’ve printed out photos of clouds taken with my cell phone and then drew right on top of the clouds.
In this picture you will see that some poodle’s grooming can get out of hand. Especially poodles who have been trained to watch the hedgehog. Meanwhile a pig glances over from his mud hole and a marmoset trembles in abject fear of the poodle. Look. If you don’t like the way I’m calling it, write your own synopsis.
I was riding in the van the other day looking out the window at huge billowy clouds. I saw all kinds of great figures and whatnot in them. Then it hit me: I should be taking pictures of these clouds, printing them out, and drawing the whatnot! If only I had remembered that my phone is also a camera. Instead it hit me the next day when the clouds weren’t quite as awesome. I still took some photos and WOW is my phone’s camera awful. It didn’t matter though.
Last night I printed them out and started drawing. I’ll be posting the results over the next few days.
