You Can Lead A Horse To Water…

You Can Lead A Horse To Water...

Marker and rollerball pen on standard sketchbook paper.

With this week’s Illustration Friday topic being water, I thought I would make a new twist on the old saying, “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.”


Gum Burst

Ordinarily I don’t do posts like these, but these have an interesting backstory.

Last week’s Illustration Friday topic, Burst (of course, it wasn’t last week’s *yet* when I started), seemed like a good one to try for myself, but I wasn’t initially sure how to go about it. Having been in the Badlands that Friday and having seen some around, my first thought was a grazing bison about to explode, a la Mr. Creosote in “The Meaning Of Life”. Unfortunately, the bison I ended up drawing did not look like it was about to burst. My next thought was a grazing cow (which I also saw a lot of) with an overly full udder, but I felt that wasn’t convincing enough of a burst either.

A few days later, it started to hit me the trip would soon end, and I brought a smiling toy moose into the hotel with me for cuteness. It then hit me to draw the moose making a bubble from gum.

Blowing Bubble

Since the full bubble still did not look enough like it was about to burst, I decided to draw the aftermath the next night.

Black and White Gum Burst

I felt this was too good an idea not to do in color on bigger paper.

Fish Fry

Originally I planned to name it “Saturday Night Fish Fry” (after the Louis Jordan song), but I wasn’t sure how to accurately express night, so I made it so it could double as a Sunday morning fish fry.


Stuck Tongue

Inspired by this week’s Illustration Friday topic.

Many of my coworkers (and classmates, before them) have always had the same food and/or drink, from the same restaurant, every morning. I prefer variety.

I apologize for being quiet lately, but I recently started a new job which has tired me out.
