Check out the new sruble.com! My brand new website design is finally done! Yippee!!! (There is cause for cheering. I didn’t know if it would ever get done with all the glitches I had. Some duct tape and a few staples fixed it right up.)
The prompt for Illustration Friday
this week was proverb. I couldn’t resist updating an old image to fit
the proverb, “a rolling stone gathers no moss,” except my version is, “a
rolling cat gathers no mice.” Poor kitty.
The other proverb that came to mind was, “what’s good for the goose,
is good for the gander,” which obviously means that when one goose has
an umbrella, it’s good for everyone.
I did this image a while back and for some reason, everyone thinks
it’s a family of ducks. It’s not; they’re geese. You can tell by their
pointy bills and the shape of their bodies, which admittedly are
similar to ducks, but not the same, at least not the way I draw them.
Besides, everyone knows that ducks don’t carry umbrellas. If you still
don’t believe me, let me show you what my ducks look like. This is a
duck that I drew around the same time as the geese:
See, nice round bill, up to no good = duck.
I can tell you’re still not convinced. Okay, then. I’ll have to bring out another duck.
Ta Da! You can tell it’s a duck, because no self respecting goose
would ever wear this hat! Also because of the rounded bill. You
secretly want that hat, don’t you? Me either, but I do wish the duck
would invite us to the party. You know they’re going to have cake. Yum,
What was the subject of this post again? Oh yeah, proverbs. Remember,
a rolling cat gathers no moss, and an umbrella that’s good for the
goose is good for the gander. What’s your favorite proverb?
Don’t forget, I also have a shiny new website. Hooray! I think having a finished website calls for a celebration. Who wants to join me for some cake?
