Illustration Friday: "Gluttony"

Image Hosted by
Friar Tuck Style, 2005 • Pencil and Photoshop®

This was fun to do. I just did small drawings of the pig-man's head, arm, and the turkey leg and put 'em together.
The inspiration for this: Many young Canuck adults have episodes of Rocket Robin Hood lodged in their craniums, and I'm no exception. Between commercial breaks, you'd see profiles of Little John, Rocket Robin Hood, and Friar Tuck. The most memorable thing in Tuck's segment was his steamroller eating style, which had him taking one bite out of a food item and tossing it over his shoulder. Good times.

I really dig this.

Ah,,,Friar Tuck. Hmmm, perhaps if he showed the same amount of enthusiasm into some carnal activity that doesn't include inserting a drumstick into his mouth, he could earn himself a new rep and a new name. Call me, Friar F**k!

Sorry, feeling like a bit of a dirty dog tonight :)

Thanks for the comments, folks. Hey is this the Patti that I know? Howdy, beautiful! :)
It's cool to have folks visiting here for something I'm doing, rather than searching for topless pictures of Sara Rue (of which I have none, thank you).

"Some may think him fat, foolish, and not worth worrying about. But don't you believe it..."

I love those little vignettes. Little John and his electro-quarterstaff with the squirrel on it. Rockin'!

Really great! I think the flung food really cements the spirit of the gluttonous pig!

"Little John and his electro-quarterstaff with the squirrel on it."
