Running on Empty





The Illustration Friday word of the week is EMPTY.

Does this really need any explanation?

On the non-commentary note, Mandy-Pandy had tubes put in her ears yesterday morning. She went into the OR at 7:30 and was running around the waiting room terrorizing other patients by 9:30. For any parents whose kids have to have this done, it's pretty much as quick & painless as everyone says.

Big mouth and blank eyes...all talk and no clear vision...definitely "running on empty." I really like your bold, in-your-face style! My goodness, even your photo is right there!

Glad to hear your daughter's (I'm assuming) ear procedure went well. You know, that doesn't mean she'll listen to you when she's a teenager :>

Thanks for your comment on my IF submission!

Hi Tony, I like the sketchy look of the lines mixed with the bold colors and the blank eye glasses. Powerful and humorous as always! Great job. I'm glad your daughter's tubes went well, and that she is home ruling the house again.

Can apply to many and needs no explanation :)

Ah yes, political rhetoric. That flag's hanging a bit crooked. I think this guy is a result of a Bush/Little Johnny Howard crossbreeding experiment :).

Unfortunately, our nasty Govt has control of both Houses now, so their rhetoric is no longer so empty... just very scary!

While it's always up to interpretation, he's just Generic Politician Man (or androgenous Generic Politician Woman.) I don't care what party they're in- they're all full of fecal matter.

Tubular, man!
when my dd got her tubes she walked AND talked within a week. Amazing what balance and hearing will do for a little human person.

But the trouble with politicians is they all look a bit like this eventually! :)
