I love when an artist uses consistency in their artwork. I like that all of your illos have similar colours and style. It weaves a consistent thread thru your stories with these cool pictures. Totally dig it!!!
My caption is "When the kid goes to bed, Wanna fool around?"

I am sorry i am such a cornball! I guess we know why I am an artist and not a writer. Although they do look like they are talking to each other but they are probably saying something much more inteligent than that!

Val, you called an "Artist" !
I have never, ever thought of myself as one! Maybe a doodler, more like! I just like that sun and the warmth it conveys.

For the caption, Hmmm...Now, come to think of it, you could be right!

Did you paint these? Nice work! Can't think of anything but Mr. Snufalupagus staggering around Sesame Street acting like he's high-;)

Caroline, a levitating elephant! That could be a winner!

Just got a joke this morning:
"A man goes to the zoo.
When he gets there, there was only a dog. It was a shitzu!" Get it?

Isis, yes I painted these and I am not proud! Sesame Street, Ahhh...Can only remember Big Bird!

Pennylane, I had a feeling your caption would have a bit of sex and violence in it!

CD, that's a good one but I think it already won a competition not too long ago, he, he, he!
Pennylane, you know, you crack me up!
Ale, well you have to get up earlier or go to bed later!
Meeting of the minds...Mmmmm...

Well, we'll leave this competition for a week and you all will have to vote for the winning caption.
The rule is that you can't vote for yourself...

Well now that's you've said it twice, I will add "Artiste" to my business card... That's along with kitchen porter, cook, waiter, failed naval architect, restaurateur, wine connoiss...eh drinker, 29-word-a-minute typist...

Thank you, Val!

oh and by the way, i would hope that when you write the book that tells the tales of your very interesting and unique childhood that you illustrate the cover and have each chapter marked by one of your lovely pictures.

"How do you fit an elephant into a car?"

"With great difficulty."

Gone to think up something about 'trunk'...

"These trunk calls are getting rather expensive."

Oh, I'm getting from bad to worse, Cream...save me from myself :-D

Actually, GG, I think you've got something quite funny here...
Keep working on the trunk call bit...You never know!

"Hey guys! I just received a trunk call of the wild!"

GG, watch it! Ale is trying to muscle in on your brainwave!

I am afraid that the standard has been very low on this occasion but GG came up with trunk calls first so she is the WINNER... Whatever the caption was!
