The illustrationfriday.com challenge word this week is “sugary”.
This could be a companion piece to my illustration for “yummy”.
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 —
But wait! The story continues…. here!
How does he have such perfect teeth with all that sweet stuff!! Nice illo!
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.
(Pssst… the choppers are obviously false!)
This illo reminds me of my Christmas baking frenzy. Deliciously manic!
Great illustration. Love the character and the sweets twirling around him.
Reminds me of fun, seventies style illustrations. Great work.
Fabulous illustration and color!
And yet, I would not accept candy from this picket-toothed happy man. Although I am a sucker for marshmallow fluff. No pun intended on the “sucker.” Another fantastic illustration, JP.
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.
Inspired! The energy of the poem is captured in the illustration!
AWESOME illustration! SWEET STUFF FOR SURE!
