Oh boy! I get to be first! I guess this is what happens after the caterpillar smokes his hookah..he gets the munchies:> Well, he looks pretty menacing, but I am sure he's not much of a match for an army of ants. Is that the mad hatter hiding beneath the mushroom? I love the watery background and the surfaces of the mushrooms. This is a fun one.P.S. - did you get my email? I have printed out a lovely drawing for you:>
i just love this!
i love this one, too. stingy worm! LOL...i love his face....he looks so pissed off! lol
Very nice...love the ants!(That intense Sunday night pressure really worked out!)
wawww, is a very nice composition
I am mostly surprised at worm having legs! Legged Worm has a squashable face - can just image the terrific squelch he would make if he managed to eat his snacks first. Mmmm, maybe I will eat the dohnut and keep the ants away with the crumbs };-}
This one is real freaky and strange. Many things to observe!!!!And as always , I love it!!!!
Superb characterisation of the creatures. Love the earthy tones in this illo. :)
This is great-so many neat things to look at with this one. It looks like he is not giving up those snacks without a fight. Well done. I do love your work! Cheers!
You are gifted my friend. Love your work so much, makes me feel young for some reason.
I love your sense of humor! Boy does worm look pissed that those ants have encroached upon his territory and munchie time. Really, really funny and creative.
wonderful character, I had a good giggle at the doughnut and coke that he is waiving about!
That's one po'd looking worm. I love his shoes--which, I suppose, are perfect for stepping on annoying ants. Great job.
Really like the style of execution here...Nice!
I have to second tony on the shoes comment – they are great! I don’t think he (worm) look menacing, just super-grumpy, like some of those old farmers you see now and then in the Midwest, complete with a doughnut! Lily.
There is so much to look at in this picture! What a look of intense irritation on that worm's face. And of course, I love the caption. Your ability to communicate emotion on paper AMAZES me! Even the greens you used remind me of a deep bruise--the ultimate in irritation!
Eeeh, a bit of a to-do going on here. Maybe if they organised themselves into different sittings for dinner this sort of thing would'nt happen. But the law of the jungle, or fairy woods, dos'nt work like that. I wonder if you ate at least one doughnut during the making of this.
How wonderful...fantastical and charming!
Another charmer. You have sch a gift for this kind of work. Even htough it has such a traditional illustrative look to it, it isn't -- and that fast-food cup just goes to show ya!
Wonderful and so magical. I love this! Now I am hungry.;)
L, it's really beautiful! Naughty ants! The detail is amazing!Well done!
WOW! Super cool illustration!love
I almost feel bad for the worm. I love how intense he looks. He is very determined not to share! :-)
CarlaSSSssshhhhh! Carla!!:)))I'm sure he is just a middle management worm on break! Or one of the Worms from the computer lab, with a bad case of the munchies. Yeh, that's right... :)Yes, finally I looked in the right place-duh! We got through this day, now things might get back to normal so life can go on and I can get back to my projects:)I'm so looking forward to this, something nice! ValGalArt Cool! You are a sweetie:) Bigtime!Thanks for the email, you really were a Godsend today! Juliemc Thank you so very much! Catnapping Thank you Catnapping:) I loved your comment about being a stingy worm:)))Janet If you only knew my dear, if you only knew:)KaRLa It was my challenge...that booger-awful compo. I was really kicking myself halfway through:)))Anonymous No, no Anonymous...he's taken a bite out of it already! WORM GERMS!!! Bleck!POOIE!!!Get his cookie!!! Don't worms have legs?!? I thought it was just spines they were missing???:)))Worms don't have legs??Merlinprincesse I'm beginning to suspect you all kind of have some room in your hearts for good-freaky and fun-strange:)) My kind of people!! Christine Lim-Simpson Thank you for your very nice comment, I do appreciate it:) Holly Thank you so much Holly. No, I think those snacks will go down with the ship as it were:))) DeeJay Yeah! You made my day!!:)Amy Zaleski He is totally po'd hehe! No sympathy for worm or ants, I just called 'em as I saw 'em!Queen Tut And he isn't going to let go of any of it!Thanks for the fun comment. TonyThat or giving them a good kick or two! He is sooo PO'd, righteously indignant even!!Ratlion Thank you, I'm so happy you liked it!I really like your name:)) (I'm a Rabbitlion) Lily and Lucy White ( super-grumpy, like some of those old farmers you see now and then in the Midwest) Well now, little lady, them there farmers were ol' boys I knew jus pretty durn well... Dad burn ants, thinkin' they can just come in here and take a workin' man's hard earned snacks... ain't happenin' I tell you! heheh! Cate I figure if I do it another time I'll have most of the bugs worked out. It amazes me that you notice:)You're catching me at my tricks:)))Modroom If you go down in the woods today, you're in for a big surprise...yes eventually this will end up in the woods. I have had a spot there for it for a long time and have put this project off. IF gave me the push I needed to get cracking on it.No doughnut for poor me, nasty worm wouldn't share...I did get part of the apple though:))) Trick is, you just have to be meaner than the worm and faster than the ants!Violetismycolor Thanks!! I hope it gave you a chuckle. AndreaI love the traditional illustrations, and trained in the commercial arts,and then later in the fine arts. But first and foremost I love, LOVE art...of all kinds. Anyones art...it is all wondrous to me. So I can do most of it one way or another, except I can't throw pots:( I don't know why that is...but I just can't do it! I kills em! I finally gave up...rotten pots!!! Over the years, ideas have blended and I do what pleases/interests me. I hate being put in a box, I'm just too rebellious:))) Leezy ANT ALERT!!! Just kidding... you really scared that old worm though...heheh!Cream Thanks Cream...You're a dear!! THANKS Unknown!! Super-love to you!!WilnaraNo peace for the W... ah, Worms...hehehe! Thanks for the comment, you have such a kind heart:)
dear ldahl, thank you very much for your comment on "max"...Actually the whole story is absolutely true, i was stunned at the news about him and very surprised too about the coincidence with IF weekly topic...your illo is beatifull...
LOL! Very cute and funny!! (And sad?) Wonderful work, amazing to be able to do that in such a short time! Beautiful. Mary
Very nice. I love the worm sized soda cup with a bendable straw! Bravo!
This is a great illustration. I especially love the background. Love your style. Do you mostly use watercolors or is some of it done digitially?
Lovely and humorous.
Absolutely wonderful, and beautifully done!
Aynaku Wow, sad and surprising. Life and art, huh?Thanks for your compliment:) TaittemsRush job I'm afraid. Thanks for visiting Windy Nights!Big A Thank you Big A, glad to see you again:) Rachelle I work in thirds right now,one third drawing, third watercolor, then finish it up digitally.Some of my design work is all media and some is all digital, it just depends on how it is going to be used.StringThanks!:) I appreciate your comment.Aravis Thank you so much!
Oh my I doooo love this! love the colors in the background. and the characters are just adorable.Worm does look a bit mean but then he is trying to hold onto his food.
Thanks Toni, do you think he looks too mean? I really wanted him to look frustrated and aggravated, maybe even grumpy...but not mean.
Just beautifully done. I adore your work.
If you tell him he's CATerpillar he might notice he has legs and be meaner and faster ...
beautiful fun illo!
what can i say.. all your illustrations are lovely and so is this one... what surprises(!) me is the power of the classic (alice) form...but as i said, lovely!
He definitely looks grumpy. I think it's the furrowed brow and the teeth that makes me think he looks mean.That is not a bad thing. It's how he is suppose to look.You amaze me with your work. Wish I had your imagination and was able to paint it like you do.
Jaimie ..as I adore yours! Your world is fantastic!Thank you so very much:)Anonymous(hehe!)C. O. Worm knows he is a CATerpillar.It's the reason why he's rude.He fears he'll become a common Miller,so he's evolved an ATTitude.Alina Chau Thank you! vfm4Thank you, it is meant to go into the Wonderland setting in Windy Nights... but it still needs more work before then.Toni Kelly(ok, cool! Thank you so much for the feedback)And thank you so much for your comment..argg, you have no idea how much I envy you your clear eye and ability to create such perfection.
oh thank you for your very kind comment on my surprise painting. I just looked at your profile and saw one of your favorite books was confederacy of dunces. Mine too!When walking in New Orleans a few years ago I came upon a life size sculpture of Ignatius Reilly. delightful.
One of my favorite characters, and though I know he's rather grumpy I never imagined him quite that grumpy. His pipe must be empty. Great job on 'blue' as well. Thanks for your comments on my 'surprise.'
Wow!! Can I say more than that? This work talks to much to me!! I can't express how much I love this one.
This is charming beyond words. I don't know if I'd count the worm out as of yet - he just needs to eat faster or learn to share.
Jaimie I wonder if the sculpture of Ignatius Reilly is still there? :( Urban ConvertHe is just like a two year old who is a slow eater and the other toddlers are through their snacks and now are after his! :))) (yes they do make this face and KICK)Raymond Larose Thank you, thank you!!!!! Jane Doe Yep!!! :))) Thanks for your comment:)
Where is that pesky rabbit when you need him? This is beautiful.
Thank you dear Pink Poodle, the rabbit is in the castle hiding from all the snow that got dumped on Wonderland:)))
Wow, I love this image! That caterpillar character is excellent. I think this may be my favourite image of yours so far. Nice!
Hey Giles, thank you, I'm really happy you like the poor grumpy guy:)))
I think I'm in love with this illustration. Quite yummy. :)
KyraThank you for stopping by! I am really enjoying reading your page!!
