Doctor Foster
Went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain.
He stepped in a puddle
Right up to his middle
And never went there again!
This week's Illustration Friday subject is - Soaked. No one got more soaked than Doctor Foster.

I took this down from the shelf today, reworked it and .... back on the shelf it goes.

This is today's submission to the Cartoonists' Forum Competition No.95.

Flight of Fancy

(Mixed media)

Two independent juries examined this piece. One liked it, the other .... smiled. So I decided to do another entry for the Cartoonists' Forum competition this week.

This an old image (1984) which I'm submitting to Illustration Friday for their challenge - Safari.

Earlier in the week I spent several hours making a multi-layered coloured version in Photoshop. The file proved to be too big for Illustration Friday and I gradually reduced the size. Inevitably along the way the large file got lost and now there's no way of returning it to it's larger size. Here it is in its reduced form:

[And as I now find I still can't upload my offering to Illustration Friday, it won't be there at all. Stuff it]
