Let the Cravings Begin

Pickles and Ice Cream

Pickles and Ice Cream

Saturday night when I decided to play with and demonstrate my new sketchbooks, I went ahead and splashed out this week’s Illustration Friday challenge: Cravings.  That morning my beautiful young bride had told me that she was “with child.”  So of course, pickles and ice cream was on my mind for the challenge.  I thought also about a pin up model wearing a beef jerky bikini holding a pizza and a beer.  I went with her cravings instead.

Go Avery!

Go Avery!

I had some cards printed to hand out to prospective student’s parents, but the printer spelled my name wrong.  You would think they would have looked at the CHECK for the name spelling.  Really frustrating when you are on a schedule and no one else thinks it’s important.  Luckily, I had the standby Avery Smooth Edge cards around.  They’re not bad looking, but the ink in my printer is not as smooth looking as the professionals.

  1. Congratulations to the happy parents!

    I craved for watermelon & grapes. You never know, it might just change your life! =)

    (Though I draw the line at sardines & marmalade…)

    Pippa’s last blog post..Clouds!

  2. Congratulations! and nice drawing but not nearly the masterpiece that is forming. My hope is that all goes well for your family. Lots of drawings to come.

  3. Congratulations! That is excellent news.

    The only craving I had was for sour cream. I wanted it on EVERYTHING! LOL. I still enjoy it way too much.

    I was unable to be around uncooked meat, especially chicken. I found myself gagging whenever I was around it.

    Otherwise, no pickles and icecream for me. Still don’t like pickles and can only tolerate ice cream.

    Wishing you and you lovely bride all the best.

  4. Congratulations on the new little bundle of joy on the way…how many children do you have?

    Pickles & Ice cream was never one of my cravings, in fact it was nothing weird…watermelon, that’s all I wanted (living in AK at the time made this like next to impossible)
