All caught up (for now) - ICAD #4,5 and 6 >>>And an IF!

For IF 'Hurry'! Used this for ICAD4 too. Double duty.
I have this wood guy on my desk and he has traveled with me. I had him positioned like this to remind myself to start walk/jog routine so I can build up to running (its been mostly unsuccessful LOL) So when I read ' Hurry ' was the word I sat and racked my brain a bit then looked over and there was my 'Hurry" :)
I was inspired by Pauline, she has been creating pieces for Illustration Friday.
Her paintings and sketches are so refreshing!
One of the prompts was to use a dictionary definition of a word
I wish I were a better gardener, because I love all the trappings of it. There are all sorts of accessories, etc. for that hobby. I have some orchids, which I hope to draw for ICAD as well.
Currently they reside in our bathroom since they love that humidity so much! Let's see how long it takes me to kill the beauties.
I like this expression...
Tomorrow is Thursday, my favorite day of the week.
Its the day of the week where you start to come alive with the promise of weekend:)
A happyThursday to you all and to all a good night!

Being a spazzmodic gardener I particularly loved the gardening illustration but the wood guy in a "hurry" reminded me of studying fashion design. Great work!

I have this guy, too, and he's never just standing still! i like your rendition of him. it gives him personality.

I like the crosshatching to give "HURRY" a 3d-feel to it!

Hip, hip... hooray!!
Feels good to be all caught up, CHEERS! :]
All your ICAD cards look creative.
I really like your variety of line drawing elements, you designed these very well.
Great job, Fran ((hugs))
