Illustration Friday – "Punchline"

[16 Jun 2008 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 2,255 views ]

“Sometimes, when a comedian is stuck, and can’t come up with his own punchline, he is tempted to purchase one. The price is much more than it originally appears.”

Illustration Friday - Punchline

Not sure exactly where the inspiration for this comes from… I had in my head a devil or an evil clown who would provide punchlines to those in need… for the price of your soul. But in the end, apparently it’s only 15 cents. The hubby just walked by and said “Not your most inspired work.” Sigh. Well, i think it’s cute anyways.

Continuing the Faux Vintage Ad Posters series

And since i spent last week at the beach (OBX was great!), i was late posting last week’s IF. Here it is, a quite different style. Click through for bigger. A Forgotten pail and shovel are now the property of the cute little crab.

    I love them both. The ‘forgotten’ is so cute and other one is so perfect and colorful!

  • Eric Barclay [] :

    These are both really nice. Like the ‘old world’ feel of the top one. The bottom one would make a really nice greeting card design.

  • ValGalArt [] :

    i love it because it reminds me of something from the past :) your beach illo is so fun and i love the groovy border!

  • tanaudel [] :

    I like the old-fashioned circus-poster feel of it. I thought at first it was advertising the dunking booth at a carnival :)
