SPD-Draw Yourself...BADLY!

This is me and Yoshi sending out The Love. Did I mention that I went to art school for 4 years?

Good grief, girl. Even hand-drawn and colorless, you're STILL cute!

L.Bo said...

I can FEEL the love! Emily Carr would be proud.

The drawing of Yoshi reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit. Remember his back legs were all one piece so he couldn't run and hop like the other rabbits. "Portrait of Yoshi as The Velveteen Cat."

Oh! Don't say Velveteen Rabbit! Now I'm going to cry.

Stacey, your artistic talent is apparent even though you try to hide it.

Candace said...

The Velveteen Rabbit is my all-time favorite book. Makes me cry every single time.

You have GORGEOUS lips, stick lady!

JessicaRabbit said...

Ok really, that one is my favorite out of all the ones I have seen.

Love the kitty and the love lady.

ladybug-thanks so much! Me with the stubbly head.

lbo-glad you got the love vibe ok. That story, I don't remember much of it except that it was REALLY sad.

laura-thanks for seeing the artistic bits. I got a C- in drawing. I did mostly 3D stuff. This is one of my finer works. I am with you on the crying part.

misfit-I don't remember much of the story except that I cried as a little kid. I have to say that my lips look EXACTLY like that in real life. Really.

Jessica R-hey, that means a lot to me. Glad I tickled your fancy.

I LOVE IT!!! I knew you'd include Yoshi. I'm so glad you participated. I like knowing more about you - you're an interesting lady, Krank.

Great love picture. How much longer on your treatments anyway? How much longer for stubbly head? Oh, hair is over-rated. Ichabod is losing some in front (just male-pattern baldness) so he started buzzing down to almost nothing. He still looks sexy to me. :-)

Von Krankipantzen said...

HDL-thanks G-friend. When you are happy I am happy! I HAD to include Yoshi. She is my little shadow.

Squirl-Hair IS overrated. Showering and getting out the door is so easy now. I am half way through my chemo. My last one is Aug 5th. I am counting down the days.

Actually, hair is over rated till it has permanently left you. Fortunately, Kranki's hair loss is temporary. Unfortunately for ichabod and myself, Ours isn't. Thank God for Red Wings and Maple Leafs hats!

And I am certain Kranki looks much better sans hair than Ichabod or I.

Cute self portrait, by the way!

greatwhitebear-I did think about all the dudes out there whose hair has fled the scene of the crime. It could be very tramatic. I know I am not crazy about gazing upon my scrofulous pate too often. Thank goodness for cowboy bandanas and ebay hats. My heart goes out to you all. However, bald dudes don't freak out the general public like bald chicks do. It is the way it is. In fact, balding dudes look pretty good. Just keep it cut close to the head and nobody gets hurt.
