Spill


So, my daughter learned how to make a fake paint spill on some PBS show and thought it would be fun to make one herself. I gave her the paint bottle and with a little Elmers glue and food coloring and this is what she came up with. She placed it on my painting and waited to see what Mom would do. She gave the right response. I thought it was very funny, although, when my younger daughter saw the spill she quickly let me know what happened. I acted like I was mad and blamed her for doing it. She started crying. I felt really really bad. But, it was still very funny.

Hilarious. My dad came at me in the backyard with a zombie mask when I was a kid. Tears were shed, but laughter followed. Hope all is well with things. How was the authorpalooza?

Thats so sad and funny at the same time. The sad part for me is my son when he was younger did that to a set of comic pages I was working on with india ink. So I can relate. By they way I am a long time admirer and lurker to your blog and well I was tagged today to list my top 25 movies of all time and I sort tagged your site. If ya have some time and want to join in check out my blog. Keep up the great work.

That's a riot! If I did that my wife would kill me (twice. Once for folling her and freaking her out and the other for making my daughter cry. It still might be worth it.) Love the underneath sketch. Looks really great.

Pretty funny. My friend and I tricked my mom in 5th grade with some fake puke.

Anyway, enough of the antics. Show some more of that sweet dragon drawing!

Consider the dragon a teaser. I just started painting it. You'll see the rest soon.

hahah, that is fabulous!
My mom and son like to trick me with with "sham poo".
They make it with a nutty chocolate bar that they melt in the microwave and let solidify in the shape of runny poop. They usually place it on the floor near the toilet.
umm- it worked, they tricked me big time!
Gross but funny.
You have to be careful leaving your child with their grandmother sometimes!
