Illustration Friday (on Wednesday!)

Illustration Friday gives a topic of the week to draw. This week's is Year of the Rooster. I wracked my brains a bit before I came up with this one. Come to think of it, who came up with the word "wrack?" Think about it. It's a pretty strange word. Maybe originally it came from "the rack," as in, "I put my wife on the rack today for not bearing me any male children." Who knows.

The beautiful and multitalented French Toast Girl has been mentioned in the April issue of Artist's Sketchbook Magazine. The bastards only gave her a small column on the bottom of page six, but we're working on them with rubber hoses. More to come.

My previous IF post was Friendship. Hey, why you're at it, why not click here and read the whole damn thing? What are you waiting for? I'm sure your boss has blocked anything more interesting from your computer anyway. Go ahead!

"Wrack" is actually an old variant of "wreck." The expression is meant as if you were messing up a room looking for something.

Groovie. It also means dried up seaweed. This is also a pretty good term to apply to my brain.
