IF-tall

IF story in which Jenn starts at one point and comes back to that same point.

I started watching "Inherit the Wind". A guy in the opening scene sounded just like Slim Pickens. I went to IMDB to see if it was him, it wasn't. Read all about Slim Pickens instead. He was an actual cowboy and is in the rodeo hall of fame. Forgot that I hadn't checked the IF prompt. Saw TALL. Thought Tall Tales. Went straight to Pecos Bill, because I love Pecos Bill. Pecos Bill on the Cyclone is my favourite of his stories. Pecos Bill riding a Cyclone had me looking up rodeo reference photos. Rodeo reference photos took me to Slim Pickens on the bomb in "Dr. Strangelove". "Dr. Strangelove" took me back to IMDB to of course read all about that movie. When I got there, the page was still up for "Inherit the Wind". I remembered that I was watching that movie, and turned it back on and started my sketch.

My life is like a deranged "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie"

Anyhoo.....Here's the sketch.





....and the inking......

.....and the final.




































Hope you like it....the process was way too much fun on this one.

IF-teacher

This is my third grade teacher Mrs. Twing. She wore cateye glasses and a big beehive hairdo. She was woefully out of style for 1979-80 and I thought she was fantastic. I am the short one on the end with the dark hair. I am still the short one on the end with the dark hair.

Here's the sketch.

Been a busy month. Lots of fun work and some sore eyes and tired hands from tight deadlines. Very happy to have some time to post an image again.
