pork chopper

I had this sketch of a piggy on a bike, so with a bit of work, this is my post for the IF topic of "toy". I think he is a little nervous and confused biker / porker, but I am glad he has taken the risk to ride out of his sty.

as ye sow, so ye shall weep

This is one I had a go at painting with acrylics, about A4 size.
I had some sense of deja vu, as I am the father of twins, and it only struck me yesterday . Was a long while ago, and with 2 others, the twins were quite an armload.

as ye cultivate

My response to the IF topic of "cultivate". I hunted back through old sketchbooks, done late at night from soppy photos, in bed just before dropping off the planet, and then this. I have painted a version and will see how that goes, this one being pencil sketch with digital finish.

Traffic light control box

The before and after shots of a control box, which I painted as part of our local council's
"beat graffiti" strategy and competition, which is judged next Thursday. They make quite a difference to the streetscape, usually remaining untagged, except by chewing gum, in this case.
The dogs and moons go well , and I painted 10 small works just for fun, like this image

the joy of cactus licking

A last minute post for the Illustration Friday topic of "warning". Some people just never listen to their mum!
