pre-1980's shoulder pads

Okay, so today's morning sketch is kind of random. I saw this picture of a Russian officer with fluffy epaulettes and thought, that's what I'll draw today. I should've made them even fluffier. ...Feel free to challenge me with your drawing of the world's fluffiest epaulettes.

I'm just at the tail end of finishing a picture book, lots of little odds and ends to complete. Hopefully I'll be able to walk the artwork into the Scholastic offices today! Fingers crossed.

Thanks, Journalista, Forbidden Planet and Steve Holland for recent links.

Edit: And oh my goodness! Someone named Barnaby Gunning has set up a blog called Save the DFC! Thanks, Jim Medway, for pointing that out. Yes, indeed, the DFC is worth saving!

Never one to walk away from a challenge...


I see this as kind of the epaulette equivalent of those women who grow their nails ridiculously long and get them shellacked with all kinds of expensive products, to the point that their fingers are effectively unusable. Or like peacocks, whose tail displays have evolved to be so elaborate that they are now unable to get off the ground.

Thanks. I thought he deserved a monocle, too. Call it a homage to Tozo...

Hi, there! Thanks for leaving a note, it's great to hear from you. :-) Funny, someone just offered me a good job because of those website aliens!

Don't worry about your English. I try to leave notes on Russian blogs, but typing in Cyrillic is very difficult for me, so sometimes all I can manage is a smiley face.
