Hi Jack - I showcased "Sh Sh Sh Let the Baby Sleep" on my blog today. As I said to Kathy, how could I not, I love the book! Your illustrations are great! If you have a chance stop by. - Maevehttp://lollipopscottage.blogspot.com/2011/07/books-with-cookies-and-milk-8.html
Très juste!!! Avec la piscine tu passes ton temps à remplir le frigo pour nourrir tout ce petit monde!...Belle illustration...gros bisous
OOh I know those people!!!! They have invited themselves for dinner and a bunch of other thing Jack!!! Any ideas on how to get ride of them? Hey Man!! How are you? Hope that you are staying busy and not having to fan yourself to death in all this heat. If hell is any hotter why would you want to go? It's been a while, but I had to come by and see what you where up too. Hope that you and the family are doing well.best,V
Ahahaha! Is this a personal experience? My advice would be...add some huge green toads into the pool, and you never know, they might think twice about coming back. But then, it might even backfire...if they happen to be toad lovers. :D :D
That's why we don't have a pool - oh - now that I think about it... WE ARE THOSE PEOPLE!!! Fantastic work Jack.
That's very clever and funny :-)
Friends are forever!!! :)
Lol! Why didn't you tell us?! We'll be right over! Lol! I adore this, Jack! In this heat, folks like these are the most popular...backyard pool...ahhh...! :)
I love the dog :) Maybe I'll bring my puppy next time I go to my friends' pool.
Ha ha ha!! Clever!!! I'll get my water wings!
Hehehe, that is so funny Jack. I really enjoyed this. It woke me up from my afternoon slump and made me smile. :)
I'm sure alot of that is going around during the current heat wave!
I love your sense of humor.
So funny Jack! We just crashed my brother's pool the other day!
ha ha ha and the same ones come to those with beach houses! oh so clever Jack! loving the vibrancy of their faces too!
terrific characters, as always!
Cute! I had a friend who had a pool, so we were the visitors.: )
Funny idea and illustration! I'd let these folks come over all summer long if it meant I could have a pool!!
Ha Ha Ha, another brilliant illustration, love their over enthusiastic expressions:)
Awww... with neighbors that cute, who wouldn't want them over! As long as they bring chips and dip!
HaHa... love it! This looks like my doorstep! But then again the more the merrier, right! Great share. Hope all is well with you and the family. :)
Jack you know George Bernard Shaw once went to see Osacr Wilde's The importance of being Ernest and was observed to screaming with joy and metaphorically laughing his head off, but as he was leaving the theatre he was asked what he thought of the play. And he replied (Wilde being his finest and wittiest opposition)"Oh it was boring, nothing but fluff. Nothing serious and worthwhile remembering." What a gruff eh? If Georgey baby was alive today I am sure he would look at your work and see a primeval metaphor for the human condition o0zing from all of your work. You see GBS missed the point. Humour explains the essence of things and lets us see our lives in a new light.Thanks for making me laugh. And explaining the essence of my life! (I am selling the pool :) )
YAY for Jack! I was just mentioning you to a few of my non-illustrator friends and said that this lovely blog community of ours gives us the opportunity to make new friends in a whole different arena and that your work is a perennial favorite each week for me. I said, if you want to see the word for the IF prompt each week that will give you a smile or a huge laugh, go to Jack's page. He never disappoints. This is one awesome post, my friend..yep, perennial swimming friends! How fun!! Thank you for your lovely visits and kindness, Jack! I hope you are enjoying your summer with good family times and lots of time to create (how do you do it all?!).
Hey there, Jack! You are the greatest with these themes each and every week. I haven't been as great about commenting. Trying to meet a deadline is tough work. I love the innocence of the kids and dog, along for the ride! You capture realistic emotional expressions so well. Thank you MUCHLY for taking the time to catch up on my blog! Your words could not have come at a better time. I am often plagued with doubt and your comment righted my attitude. Until next week! Can't wait to see what you do for obsession!
Hahaha they look cute!
I feel lucky that we always avoided these! Sort of. I love their cheeky expressions and the summery colors. You/your work has a really great sense of humor. Thanks for the comment on my stuff! :)
