53 1/2: The KISS Principle
Illustration Friday offered a theme of simple this week, and busy as I am – at work and in the evenings lately – I was ready to let this theme slip by, only drawing a half-completed doodle on the weekend. I obviously didn't listen to the famous and sage advice of the KISS principle: Keep It Simple, Stupid. But Kerry came to my rescue with a brilliant idea on Sunday night; that she ghost-draw, in my place, something for the theme. I agreed, because of all the people submitting to Illustration Friday this week, nobody's work would be more simple than mine. Because in the end, is there really anything more simple than delegation?
So in the spirit of those Family Circus* cartoons drawn by Billy, this week's Jeopopolis submission was made by Kerry. The first (left) is a simple female figure drawing (very cool; I'm often unable to make stuff like this, boiled down to its purest form). And second (right, tipped on end) is a sketch of one of her über-comfortable Simple shoes.
Everybody say "thanks, Kerry"! I sure am. And as always, let us know what you think.
* This is the first, last and only time I will ever mention The Family Circus here.
