Punchline


My immediate reaction to this week's Illustration Friday theme was to do some sort of character with perhaps boxing gloves or something to that effect. You can see I didn't dwell on that idea for too long - too obvious.
Then it occurred to me that so often we want the joke to finally get to the punchline. Skip the details and tell me the joke for heavens sake. As you can see, sometimes the story teller tends to ramble on and on and on and on...
Okay I'll quit now. Point made.
It also occurred to me that most of the work I do at Toonaday.com is the result of requests so why not make the weekly Illustration Friday topic one of the daily toons, only add backgrounds and other elements? Ron you are so clever...

You've been my favourite illustrator for more than a decade. What an imagination you must have to keep coming up with these great ideas. I love it.
