Illustration Friday - TALL
Click to enlarge

Gerry could never figure out why Darby always seemed to be in a foul mood....

Of course the first thing to pop in my mind when I saw this week's prompt was 'giraffe' but I figured that would be rather popular. Then I thought of a stork, heron, or other long-legged bird, but I drew birds last week & the last thing I'd want  is be accused of being boring! So I thought some more, and came up with this. Afterall, the dog world is full of extremes....  This one was cranked out lickety split, so I'm not thrilled with the execution. But if I didn't get it out tonight, it wasn't going to happen until Thursday night, & crickets are usually chirping & tumbleweeds blowing on IF after a certain time on Thursdays....
  Big thank you to everyone who stopped by last week & commented on "Teacher." I really appreciate your comments!!

  1. Yay, dogs! Great Danes are a favorite, so goofy! But they do leave their drool around! Great expressions! I've known some really great dachshunds too. (And that word doesn't looks right at all.) :D

  4. HA! This is great. I've owned and love Rhodesian Ridgebacks and the GD is part of their bloodline. And, the dachshunds look like little shrunken 'mini-mes' of the RR...so you captured all I love about a dog you didn't even illustrate. Oh dear. I am rambling. Love this illo would have been so much easier to say.

  7. Hey, this is a good one, and a good solution. I gave up on the word and just did my own thing. I started to feel like I was working for ill. friday every week, but they don't pay me. ha ha..

  15. foul mood and likely foul aroma.
    certainly puts a damper on Darby's love life I bet.
    I like Gerry's obliviousness.
