Hello and Happy New Year Everyone!
=
I decided to start off my 2010 blog postings with an Illustration Friday post. This week's topic is renewal. I came across this comic I drew for my niece last year and feel it suits the topic.

My niece has this doll that I'm sure must have sounded normal at one point but by the time she got it, it was second hand and the voicebox just wasn't the same. It could only produce moans and slow dialog (we named the doll Creepy Baby) yet Ella (who at age two also called her doll Creepy Baby) didn't seem to mind.
When we'd ask her "What does your baby say?" she would respond (as above) "growwohwwhww"... it was too funny and definitely worth a comic.

Anyway, on the subject of renewal, almost one year later, my sister and Greg decide to try replacing Creepy Baby's voicebox batteries and, sure enough, no more demonic groans.

And there you have it. Creepy's sounding as good as new.

  2. nice interpretation of renewal! :) and it's cute on top of that! i'm surprised your niece didn't ask for creepy baby's old batteries to be put back in! :)

    my son broke his (terrifyingly ugly) piggy bank this morning. i was relieved. i've always wondered why it didn't keep him up at night w/ nightmares. he's been really bummed ALL DAY about it and is constantly asking if i can fix it... eek! imagine how ugly it'll be after a round with the superglue... O_o

  3. Haha, that's too funny. If you ever do end up piecing it together I'd love to see what results. Who knows, maybe he'll end up passing the mangled piggy bank down to his children... and the viscious cycle continues... :)
