Superstitious Fellow


This poor guy thinks that no matter what he does, a black cloud will follow him to the end of his days. His future's not looking so promising, is it?


Done in response to Illustration Friday's..."Superstition."

Reminds me of a Douglas Adams book where a character doesn't realize he is a rain god. I like the contrast of the red umbrella with the greyness of the rest of it.

The red umbrella stands out so well from this minimal drawing. And the stamped trees are just perfect! Love it!

I am so excited to see this! You must put this up on the Etsy store so I can have it in my hands!

another blog??!! Seriously - where do you find the time??

this one looks like something you would see on pages of The NewYorker!

I'm sorry, but I had to laugh - if only he'd get rid of that umbrella his mood just might change :)

Btw, a friend told me about moleskins yesterday and I think I'll get one and see what transpires. I love what your doing with yours.

I just discovered this blog! I've bookmarked it. Great drawing. I love stormy weather and rain--If I were that fellow, I would be very happy :-)

I've just discovered your Moleskine blog and I think it was a brilliant idea to create it.
I like your sketches very much.
