IF: sugary

Spread the love

The illustrationfriday.com challenge word this week is “sugary”.
This could be a companion piece to my illustration for “yummy”.
I know a guy who's tough but sweet.
Here’s my original Tale of Swirly von Swirly deCocoa McDuff
Swirly von Swirly deCocoa McDuff
Made candy and gumdrops and sugary stuff
He mixed up ten pounds of peppermint sweets
And coconut tangerine crispy rice treats
Tray after tray of peanut fudge drops,
Hazelnut toffee and red lollipops.
Swirly von Swirly, he mixed and he stirred
Batch upon batch of sweet lemony curd,
Butterscotch cherry cashew rum brittle
Caramel chewies with cream in the middle
Those copper pots glistened,
Those pots of McDuff
Overflowing with chocolate
And marshmallow fluff
That Swirly von Swirly, he stirred and he mixed
Nonpareil candies all dotted with Trix!
He tried and he tested and experimentated
Shaken-up fizzy sticks (noncarbonated)
Clusters of almonds in a big creamy puff
All made by the Master —
deCocoa McDuff.

But wait! The story continues…. here!




  1. Between the vampire orthodontics tee and this drawring, I feel like I should pay a visit to the ol’ dentist. Seriously though, dude has some pretty perfect teeth. I’m kinda jealous.

  2. My, oh my, this sugary sweet guy
    Makes treat, after wonderful treat.
    And I don’t mean this guy in the drawing
    I’m speaking of Josh Pincus is Crying.

    Okay, so maybe the rhyming is off, but you get the idea.
