Illustration Friday: Cake


This is really lame. I thought a butler with a piece of cake would be a funny image, but I missed the boat. Oh well, it was quick and I didn't have time to fix it up. Maybe I'll try something different later in the week.

This isn't lame at all. I love the butler and his very bored expression. Well done!

Jaimie said...

I agree with creative kismet!
The butler was clearly embarrassed that he had to deliver a slice of pink cake so he feigned an aura of scorn or contempt. great job!

Your butler is an excellent character ~ I love his rosy cheeks and sense of ennui! The cake looks yummy, too!

Your *quick* illustrations are always perfect! I like the concept...though, it is rather sad...a single slice of cake with a single candle. However, the look on the butler's face seems a bit of satisfaction that his "master" is all alone on his/her birthday...so, he may be the one laughing inside!

LOL, what do you mean??? This is hilarious and even more so, after reading your thoughts about it. How can a butler with a piece of cake NOT be funny?! Especially when he takes it so seriously. Great job!
