Illustration Friday: Punchline


My submission for Illustration Friday's "Punchline" theme. Happy Friday :)
House of Mirth 2007


If you have not seen this then you are in for a wonderful story with a great punchline. You will need to turn off the Playlist stereo so that you don't have competing sounds playing.

I wish my cat would greet me like that, maybe I need to send her to africa for a while. Too funny that they named the lion Christian.

Hohoho, a smiling house is always a good house. Sad houses make sad people.

I was wondering what you would do for this. That happy house is great. That Lion video is the sweatest thing I have seen for a while.

Jan said...

Val, my rabbit machine is dedicated to you since you're great artist.

Gillian said...

Val - thanks for your kind comments and your generous offer. I'm currently working on Windsor & Newton Lana Cartridge paper and I've decided I like smooth, so that's the direction I'm going in, I think, so I shan't trouble you. I shall try all the suggestions you and the others put forward too - now it's just technique I need to sort out.
Thanks again. xxx
