Illustration Friday: "Obsession"

      how it all begins...

  1. Yup! She's a member. Says it all, doesn't it?

  2. This is a teeeeeeny bit frightening ...

  3. Did she get it?

    A mysterious sketch, beautifully drawn

  4. gosh! that my daughter!!! ; )

  5. Hello Elizabeth:
    Yes, its is that slightly manic look which, as Suze says, becomes a tiny bit frightening. And have we not all witnessed this at some point or another?

    Of course, the sad thing is that once 'it' is acquired, then it will instantly lose all value in terms of being desired.

  6. I recognise that glazed look. It brings back horrific memories of so many fads and crazes and other 'must haves.'

  7. excellent facial expression! - right on!!!

  8. was it fingers she wanted? I love this - absolutely great

  9. I believe the correct diagnosis is Monoplusmania.

    Her expression makes my tendrils tremble!

  10. And by the look on her face, she got it.

  11. Those are the eyes of an obsession!

  12. I really, genuinely, love this ‘out there somewhere’ character. I just want to have a full height copy of her pasted to the door at the end of the hall. Those eyes. That expression. Brilliant.

    Along with her dress, she’s straight out of the ‘X’ Files. Definitely wouldn’t want to risk having a cross word with ‘herr’, any time soon. The ‘no’ word just wouldn’t compute with ‘herr’, at all.

    Your genius is the way you so cleverly present us with such a character in a seemingly oblique, casual and hurriedly doodle penned sort of way.

    But I’m not that easily fooled E.R-S!

    Not even one, inncy, winncy, lickle, bit…

    Bet she can’t walk without gently rocking from side to side as she goes.

    Think I’ll call her ‘KaKaKaKa Katie’.

    (Word Ver was 'reeke' BTW) (I'm off for a shower then) (thank you kindly)

  13. Ooh, I always want something more than anything I've ever seen before. I can relate to this!

  14. Sooooo true. I think I know that girl...wait, I am that girl...

  15. wow, I got quite scared when I saw it, can I come back out from under the bed? :-)

  16. HaHa...haven't we all been there?! Even if we can't remember it?! I think so...especially if there was loads of sugar involved...which I think she might have had a bit too much of by the looks of it. ;)
    Great illustration!!!
