Illustration Friday: Garden -

"Selfportrait of the Artist as a Garden Stake"
digital collage by Mick Mather
The Illustration Friday theme-of-the-week is garden and as I was poking around in the dictionary, a thesaurus, photo files and a garden catalog, I spotted more than a few decorative garden stakes. Oh boy! Something for The Selfportrait Series here I bet! Yup ... :D

I like this self portrait (of you that you did of yourself). It looks a lot like the on I did of you. And I'm happy to say that it doesn't look geeky. Did you get your 10 bucks? Have you seen my latest destruction?
I sent a study to Heaven yesterday.

I hadn't paid any attention to the similarity between this and your study - now, obviously, I have. I did get my $10, thanks. I ran right out and spent it on a shot of expensive Irish Whiskey. I left you a voice mail well over a week ago - you need to check those things once in a while. So, dude, put down the bong and give me a call!:D

janice:
LMAO - yes, you can absolutely say that! :D

Humm, well, I think I might see you more as a garden stake than as a "geek" :-).

Could you please send me a dozen (at least). It will soon be time for gardening. Spring is coming.

Let me see - 1 dozen heads of cabbage for Hélène. Did you want a brisket of corned beef with that?

I guess as a king among cabbages, there will always be something at stake! Good one, Mick:>
