Illustration Friday: contagious


My submission for Illustration Friday's "contagious" is a small illustration titled "Home Sick". This little house has the chicken pox and is very contagious so don't just pop over or you might catch some.

Your house is so cute... Mine is similar ... except for the house thing!
I like your use of yellow and the expression of the house.

Oh.... I am feeling so sorry for this little house. It looks so forlorn. But fortunately the chicken pox will soon be over...just don't scratch too much.

Dear Valerie,
I am not scared, this little house is cute and lovely in his/ her own way.
Even chicken pox made he/ she more beautiful...I don't might getting it...
He..He..because I already got it once, I wouldn't get it anymore:)

I really like the minimal background as oppose to the yellow little house here.
Cool, is he/she drinking a rebina or medicine.....
A sweet surrender for "contagious" chicky box...not chicken box...because it's just a little dots randomly pop here and there.

I have a fun time dropping by.

Hope you will have time to pop over.
Saying bye from Malaysia.

Cool cool and pop pop week ahead Valerie!

it amazes me how you have a house to fit every promt!! Home sick, how perfect!! It's wonderful ;)

I remember when I had shingles (so awful) the doctor said you couldn't get them if you had the chicken pox as a kid. Liar liar pants on fire!! I had one of the worst cases of CP in my town!

Hey...all of your houses have shingles!! I just thought of that.
