  8. This is a fabulous image; what an imagination! I shall enjoy cows much more in future.

    Sitting in Antwerpen; the computer's so slow I can't 'visit' as I'd like. We collect the puppy one week from today; it's all I can think about. Problem: how to house train a puppy when you live in an appartment (one floor up a long set of stairs) in the middle of a town!

  27. clever clever, lolo. i saw the balloon seats only as an afterthought. of course, i'm too genteel for matters of bodily fluids and sounds, so i glided past that part...

    :)

  28. Thanks everyone! I had fun using different balloons and also linking to the global warming controversy. I actually had a nicer illustration of a woman in mind that I can hopefully create another time.

    Suana: Awww, sweetie, get better soon!

    KJ: I could never portray a person doing this, but a cow seemed so natural and timely! BTW, I'm also enjoying getting to know you as well :)

    Brine: Live vicariously lad, go for it!!!

    Get Zapped: Yes, T'giving was quiet and nice, thank you. I hope yours was nice as well. XX

  29. Oh, excuse me!

    OMG, OMG, this is TOO FUNNY! You have too much wit for your own good. Love the graph paper background, too! Adds a bit of scientific authority to it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh no way! You are such a gas!!
    Let that cow know that we are laughing with her, not at her.

    ReplyDelete

  33. That's so funny. We have cows surrounding our yard. I guess that's one of the reasons it smells so bad. Cows with gas. Good one. Illustrated well.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Bizarre and hilarious! so cool..

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOVE your idea and so well done work !!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow, was not expecting that!!! Very funny! Love how you did the hot air balloons on the cow too!

    ReplyDelete
  37. the cows get such a bad rap, I think it's really the termites' fault!

    you gave me a much needed laugh, thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. blaming it on the cows is the easy way out… however… i think there is truth in it… wonderful take… and a great piece of work…

    ReplyDelete
  39. and i almost forgot… happy anniversary to you too…

    ReplyDelete

  46. Oh, now you've made me snort my cup of tea! It narrowly missed my computer keyboard .

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is hilarious! And the style is very nice.

    I read your posts about the random things about yourself. Thank you for sharing those things. It's inspirational to know you went through bad times but were able to change and be a better person. You also made me feel grateful that I have a big closet even though we live in a small space too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. HA! Missed this one-- just hilarious! Beautifully drawn too, the balloon spots are brilliant.

    (Though I'm sure it wouldn't be so funny to be standing right behind her...)

    ReplyDelete
