Illustration Friday: Late


The original.


My version.

The quintessential late guy in literature would have to be Lewis Carroll's White Rabbit. Or was it the Jefferson Airplane's? Whatever. The icon of late.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!"

I drew this illustration probably before most of the Illustration Friday participants were out of diapers, but it's working for me today. Man, I could draw chains back then.

I'm curious to see if there's any menstrual cycle references this week.

Better late than never.

Great imagery and color! Yes, there's a bunch on the menses. It's still one of those latenesses that pack a bang! :)

I never read Catcher in the Rye... but it seems that 9 out of 10 crazed homicidal killers say it is their favorite book! Do you own a gun?

yes, this is an old comment... but I like it and thought I would use it again. It's so hard to come up with something new... :0)

Very nicely drawn. You must stay very busy with your illustration.
