Illustration Friday : Skinny 2



Ok. This might sound funny but when I was young (and small and much more innocent), I applied simple logic to a lot of things, including the meaning of the word 'skinny'. So off my mind went...

Skinny = Lots of skin = Fat



So here's to childhood, it's assumptions and the twisted language called English.
Do leave feedback:)

heya, jazzie! i haven't been here in a while but just spent 15 minutes or so, going thru all of your posts, (since july!)taking it all in. such wonderful, wonderful work! i love the character sketches - your lines are lean and smart and so expressive! i love when i can see your thinking, too...teeeny thumbnails in a corner, counting heads. i think my fav is the "tailor study" - and the shy pose, with his face hidden up behind his knee. just fantastic - and thanks so much for the visits! :)))
