Illustration Friday: Hoard -

"Sitting On Something That Everybody Wanted"
digital collage by Mick Mather
This week's theme, hoard, at Illustration Friday was just too tough for me to deal with after the long week I've had. I've taken an image that I like and gave it a twisting title with a play on words. Forgive me, but I'm almost asleep as I attempt to finish this up.

Thanks so much for saying so. As mentioned in the post itself, this one was about as difficult as I can ever remember an IF topic being ... for me at least.

Hmm haven't been participating in IF for a long time.
Lazy.

Thank you, Susu. It was the pose that struck me right away too. As for you? Lazy? Well, I s'pose that should be encouraged in the summer time. :)

I agree about the texture making this one work even more.
I've been uninspired by the last couple of words...
punchline and hoard. They're killing me here! When I turn to a crappy digital collage, you know it's a cop-out.
Glad it made you laugh though :)

Thanks, Laurel. I should reinforce the fact that I like the image a lot. Like you, I've been a bit flummoxed by recent themes at IF
myself so I was forced to devise a title that would make the artwork fit. By the way, I'm still giggling at the lawn filled with all of those flamingos. Oh, what are you using to keep the crab grass down? It appears to be working great! :D

I'm with ya, this was a hard topic. Although they all seem to be that way recently.

Yeah, what's with this string of impossible topics over there. Well, maybe they're trying to see that we s-t-r-e-t-c-h our thinking? :)
