Caffeinated Sprites

Our assignment in Drawing for Illustration was integrate fantasy creatures with modern objects. I had fairies drinking soda, or as my cousin Carrisa pointed out, Sprites drinking Sprite.

Why is the soda making them act drunk? Does soda get fairies drunk? If so, man I wish I was a fairy.

I thought there was some myth that fairies or elves loved sugar water, but after asking several people, I think I just imagined it.

Whether it's myth or made up by me, soda gets THESE fairies drunk.

Lol!!

BTW: you have been doing a lot of writing, so is all these updates filling your nanowrimo?

Great job on all your classes so far.

PS, more Moby pics please!! Esp a PROFESSIONAL one. His eyes are just gorg! Fall time is a good time for a pic outside. Ask a friend who has a super awesome DSL and some photoshop skills (oh, you come in for this also!)

Austin said...

we'll talk to one of our friends (Charlotte) about taking Moby pics for you.

You can also come visit, you know! ;) he's even cuter in person.

All the writing has been in anticipation for NaNoWriMo, but that starts next month, however, I'm not sure I'm going to do it this year as I have no time for anything besides work school cleaning and parenting as it is.

Ideally, I'll finally write a second draft of the 50 page story I wrote last year.

after all those cans of fairy soda, those faeries must need to use the fairy can

Caffine makes sprites horny. That is the moral of your illustration.

I can't remember if the Serrated Edge series (Mercedes Lackey) had fairies getting drunk off cola or had it listed as a way of poisoning them ...

Fun pic!

Lemme know if you're up for Nano! (Friend me!) I may make my usual attempt ... tho if history repeats itself I will also get a winter illness that shall prevent me from making a written masterpiece that is complete ...

Dad- That's very funny, I admit it took me awhile to get.

Charlo- Only 2 sprites got horny from drinking soda. Only 2.

Hailer- I'm gonna try, but history will probably repeat itself with me too. I've never finished it, but at least I've gotten more writing done in November than I do almost all the rest of the year.
