and you think YOU have problems...

Mr. Capon's insomnia
acrylic on collage

I couldn't resist...I was thumbing through a book for text that tells a story for this weeks Illustration Friday's word: BREAKFAST.

This is what I came up with...when I read this sentence the image flew into my head and here you have it...I made the collage background and then painted Mr. Capon with acrylic paint on top.

Poor guy - he looks worried for sure...and tired from lack of sleep. I suppose it's a stretch to think of poultry for breakfast, but then there's always chicken hash...

Love the combination of words and image! It is in the spirit of etegami, which is what I do.
