Illustration Friday: Contraption

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “contraption,” which I though was a perfect opportunity to showcase a new invention from my laboratory.

There’s a new dish being prepared in some of the world’s finest restaurants, and I wanted to get in on the ground floor, because I think this is the next big thing. It’s called “toasted bread” or more commonly “toast”.
I know what you’re thinking:
“Toasted bread? Why would I want to dry out an otherwise delicious, moist and chewy slice?”

While I’m not going to called you an uncultured ignoramus, I would respectfully suggest that you should TRY it before you pass such a crude judgment on something you know nothing about for crying out loud.

So anyway, I was thinking of ways that the preparation of toast could be brought the home market, and this is what I came up with. This is the head-mounted version, and the big issue I’m dealing with is REACHING THE TOAST, but I’m sure I’ll come up with a solution as the design process unfolds. Possibly a tremendous pair of chopsticks.

Illustration Friday: Late


Late again! And drunk! Again! This wedding is never going to happen!

I was almost late in posting this, but I wasn’t, and also I wasn’t drunk (not my scene). If I had been late that would have been fitting perhaps, and if the topic had been “early” and I was late, that would have been ironic. Instead it is neither fitting nor ironic, and certainly not interesting enough to merit a paragraph.

This is pen with Crayola marker, some water, and then some color added in Photoshop. I don’t know what medium that makes this, but let’s say digital, because how else could you be looking at it on your computer? Eh? Eh?
