Illustration Friday: Tea

This is my husband. He fetches me tea. He treats me like a queen. Isn't he a good sport? Being raised in the south, I grew up believing tea and coffee were merely vehicles for delivering milk and Dixie Crystals to my system. I still pretty much believe that. I tried to get into the whole herbal tea thing, but it just never worked for me. I still enjoy very sweet tea, though. And I hope you enjoy my interpretation this week. Come back next week to see which family member I exploit in the name of art.

Is there a B&D thing happening here? That's two IF entries with twine being prominent. I like the facial contortions especially.

neilornstein said...

this is truly outstanding in a disturbing sort of way. The technique is great but the idea trancends the chops.
