Here is one of the animals that I did recently that has a GROW theme. Give it a chance... maybe it will GROW on you. :0)

I have been too busy with work in the last couple of weeks to do anything fresh for Illustration Friday. And this week I am attending a 3 day workshop, so I have even less time. Maybe things will get better in the near future.

apple bear

By request, here is the bear and the apple tree. Yep, bears just LOVE apples. Can't get enough of 'em! They are known to accost campers and break into their tents looking for a good Fuji. A good rule when suddenly encountering a bear is... drop your apples and run.

Thank you for visiting this edition of Wild Kingdom.

so... any more animals you are dying to see?

porcupine on a pumpkin

Porcupine on a pumpkin

Yep... it sure SOUNDS like diner talk, but it's NOT! If you happen to order a pig in a blanket and the waiter brings you a porcupine on a pumpkin... change restaurants.

Pig and blankets

I had a request to see the pig with the pancakes. "Pig in a blanket" is more "diner lingo" (see previous post) for a sausage link wrapped in a pancake. Good stuff! We had pancakes Sunday. I like to get a leftover pancake out of the fridge and put grape jelly on it for a snack. Or... two leftover pancakes with peanut butter & jelly is also reeeeeally good. Unfortunately there were no leftovers. As the pancakes sat out on the stove, I would pick one up and munch on it whenever I walked by... and soon there were no more pancakes.

When you are out campaigning for president... always watch out for OPEN manholes!

le Rat

Here he is, by popular demand.... the rat on a slide! Hmmm... that sounds a lot like DINER LINGO. I really like diner lingo. "Adam and Eve on a raft" is two poached eggs on toast. "Burn the British" is a toasted English muffin. I heard one recently on the radio that I liked. It was "whistleberries and dogs" that translates to "beans and franks" :o)

So... any other requests to see any of the other 100 animals? While you are thinking about it I'm going to have a Windmill Cocktail....

le COW

Well, well, well... it seems that some of my 8 visitors don't know what a cow looks like. Now THIS... is a COW. Or at least this is how MY cows look. They are always white with black splotches... and have hooves. Study this cow for the next week and then see if you can distinguish it from a sock monkey. End of lesson. I sure hope you were taking notes here... a pop quiz can happen at any time!

This cow was one of the 100 animals that I did recently for a job. If you poke around here, you can find sketches of all 100. If you happen to run across an animal that you would really really like to see the finished version of, just let me know and I will post it.

OK, class dismissed. Please, no running on the way to the lunch room.

MiniMo helps SocMo raise some much needed campaign funds in his run for president.

SocMo's campaign for president is sputtering along. Sock monkeys don't get no respect and are discriminated against everywhere. He has never been invited to a debate with the other candidates. But the good news is... he has learned 3 chords now and if his campaign fails, he hopes to become a country music star.
