Illustration Friday: Wrinkle -

"A New Wrinkle for Mrs. Milquetoast"
digital collage by Mick Mather
I've been struggling all night with this week's Illustration Friday theme, wrinkle. What to do with a wrinkle? Is it in the face? Clothes? Newspaper? Something more conceptual? Right! So, here you have it then. Tonight it might be good to be Caspar, yes?

I never in a million years would have thought of illustrating 'wrinkle' like this...I see the themes each week but I think to literaly. I could learn from you and Shani :)

Thanks for this comment, Lisa. It's quite natural and normal to take a topic literally. I have the same literal ideas as most people do, at first. Taking that, turning it upside down and inside out and then walking even further out is what makes it all fun for me. The work takes longer and the research is sometimes harder, but always I find that the journey is well rewarded. :)

Thank you for saying so. Since I'm easily excitable, I haven't been quite sure if that side of this would show through. :)

Hihihihihihi....I know, I should be serious here. Ok...I'm serious....hihihihihihihi...phoof...OK...LoLo just cracked me up. Right..well...I wouldn't have thought of this for wrinkle, but I have to admit, it's quite appropriate. IF can be a bit tame sometimes, I think you've uped the sexy factor with this one. Ah...back to wrinkles...well, I'm sure she has one, I mean some, which one(s) is up to each person's interpretation I suppose. Good work Mick!

LMAO @ Lolo's comment too! It's got to be the best of the bunch. I also have to say that this post was inspired by Harold Webster's character, Caspar Milquetoast, from his 1920's comic strip, The Timid Soul. The name has become synonymous with one who is, among other things, considered meek and submissive. Since I figure that such a man's spouse might also be the timid type, the wrinkle of the good Mrs. Milquetoast shown here is clear; just this once and just for fun! :)
