Once again, Tom made me laugh so hard with his wild and crazy words. And once again, he challenged me over and over again by throwing in all kinds of wild and crazy things for me to draw. LOTS of transportation (which I’m not too fond of drawing). LOTS of dogs (which I am very fond of drawing). LOTS of birds, cats, trash, pasta makers, and even a sloth. I thoroughly enjoyed getting around my lack of skill by “cutting corners”—I used a ton of old wood engraving clip art for all the stuff I was too lazy to draw. Those wood engravings are the bomb.
