Les Bons Temps

"Great work comes from great joy. 
Leave the angst for the movies; do art that is fun."
~Jack White

Laissez les bons temps rouler, mes amis!  Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!  No parades and beads for me today, but I did indulge in some dirty rice for lunch today, in honor of Nawlins' festivities -- does that count??


Speaking of bons temps ["good times"], this is a sketch I did today for fun -- for Illustration Friday's "Fluid" theme.

Haha, this is great! Kinda cute yet still kinda creepy. Really neat style with the burnt out frame, and I love the giant gloves. Nice!

Love this! Reminds me of that cartoon song: "Two drops of essence of terror... ? drops of sinister sauce...". Yep lost the plot completely...

Thank you so much for the feedback, you guys! Karen, I'd never heard of "Milton the Monster" before -- those are great lyrics, though! :-)

Love it! I like how the cartoon, the textures and the border all work so well together. And her face is awesome!
