EDM Challenge #239 Draw something that scares you

I never do this. NEVER. But there I was in the doctor's office.
And there IT was. All I had was my paint marker. And a pencil.
So I did it. I colored it in later.
And yes, it was a weird scale...not symmetrical. But then neither am I. :o)
The lyrics are from the song "Jet Pilot"

This is wonderful! I love the use of color, the lettering, and the take on the challenge. Terrific. It is so good to see you posting again!

Well I should hope you weigh more by the foot than by the inch! Is that a lyric? Very funny - it is definitely sinister, in any number of ways, and your portrayal makes it look like a sort of torture divorce, with the crazy circles in the back you can almost hear the Twilight Zone theme. Cool that you had your marker and pencil at the doctor's office! I never go anywhere anymore without my pens. This is addictive. Like Wil of Carving Paper says, "when I'm sitting, I'm drawing." Maybe that makes me boring to everyone else, but it's interesting to me.

that's perfect!!! i'm scared of that too! LOL!!!

I really like how the whole thing is laid out. The background with the dots and circles are cute =)
I don't have a scale in the house, so I guess that's probably the reason why too

Great take on the challenge! the ominous scale!

BarbaraB said...

Ha, the scary thing is that the doctor's scale is so different from the home scale. Very nice layout and color on these pages.

Jolene said...

Aren't all scales WEIRD? :)
I love it .... art journaling in the moment.

Thank you Donna...for everything!
Dan, I doubt that I'll do it again. Then again... Oh, and yes it's from the song "Jet Pilot"..."she's five feet nine and she carries a monkey wrench...she weighs more by the foot than she does by the inch."
Thank you Debrosi, Alex, Raena, BarbaraB, Jolene and Betty! I appreciate it...if only you knew how much!!!
