March 17th, 2008 Illustration Friday




The Illustration Friday topic this week is Heavy. Robert Smellman is no light-weight. Plus, his mother packed her special homemade poundcake in his suitcase.

As always I hope you will visit my website to view more examples of my work at www.ryanloghry.com, and please visit my retail store at www.ookybizniz.com, thank you for visiting.

How wonderful! This made me smile and I will continue to smile each time I think of what is in those suitcases.

Asian Elephants are often decorated with headbands and body paint on holidays. There are also elaborate paintings done on the forehead of the elephants for coronation events and parades.

groovy elephant Ryan - and especially creative you didn't give him a "dumbo" name. :-) I wonder if he has any jars of peanut butter in those valises?

Thank you all for your comments, it's nice to hear from you folks.

Jo, Mrs. Smellman's pound cake is notorious for being so dense as to have a discernable gravitational pull. Making it harder to resist you see.

Kari, this particular batch of pound cake was the secret peanut butter pound cake recipe handed down from generation to generation in the Smellman family.
