Jack Stacks, or, hoarding

Awhile back I started working on a book about Jack, who collects and stacks stuff. In the end he learns the old adage, 'tis better to give than receive. This drawing is one of the pages. I guess it was partly a 'self-help' action, to write about someone with too much stuff so I could identify. Anyway, it got shelved and now I'm working on one of the many other ideas I have for books. Maybe I'll revisit this one day...

In the beginning...

Here is my newest painting about Adam and Eve, titled, "The Story of Us". I'm working on a couple other bible stories also. There is so much rich imagery in the bible so I thought I'd flesh out a few in my own way. Next up is Samson fighting the lion.

Also I thought this could work for Illustration Friday this week, punchline. I've been trying to think of a punchline for this and here is what I came up with: "I don't feel like making dinner tonight, maybe just fruit will do..." Kind of cheesy I know. Let me know if you think of other punchlines for this, I'd love to hear what you come up with!
