Abraham Lincoln Gettysburg Address illustration

This is my entry for this week’s Illustration Friday word of the week. The word of the week is, “capable”. For some reason, President Abraham Lincoln comes to mind when I think of that word. He unquestionably was capable of creating a memorable speech. In this composition, I plagiarized freely from myself, a common practice among deadline-pressed illustrators.

This is my entry for this week’s Illustration Friday word of the week.

This is my entry for this week’s Illustration Friday word of the week. The word of the week is, “fluid”. I created an underwater tea party. Included in the underwater festivities is Aquaman. I like Aquaman. He can breathe underwater and converse with fish. Aquaman was my favorite superhero when I was especially young. Here is an Aquaman fact, the amazing king of Atlantis has been around since 1941. I have a sinking suspicion that Spongebob is somehow related to him.
