Illustration Friday: Poof -

"Selfportrait of the Artist Watching His Heart Go Poof!"
digital collage by Mick Mather
I had quite a time with the Illustration Friday theme again. The word is poof and a late start only added to my problems ... kind'a, sort'a, maybe. Sometimes a deadline can work wonders and I'm quite satisfied with this piece. Anyway, it's just about midnight and time to get on with it.

Thanks, Indi, it was the darkness that kept my attention for the longest time while working on this one.

Truer words, but, what's done is done and one must move on. :)

Oh...poof! Like poof it dissapeard..I read poof as in non aggresive male. I'm trying to be careful with words, the english language is confusing enough without causing offence. You chose a complex sentence to illustrate! I'm impresed.

Yes (sigh!), such things happen to the weak-willed among us. We who fall in love at the passing of a singular beauty on the street.

So, poofter was indeed on my list, Lisa, but I went with this image instead. :)

Except for my absence in the comments section, you'll never even know that I'm away! I'll be going completely wireless from August 11th thru August 24th - I think. I may sneak in to poke around, check email and such. We'll see. :)

I'd say yes, it's exactly like that.

As for my vacation, don't be too jealous ... I'm on my way to your place at the end of the week. You folks best git the cabana room ready and stock up on the rum!
