Illustration Friday, Signs


I drew this up for this week's Illustration Friday topic "Signs". I know it's a bit corny, but I'm a big fan of corny! You may notice the 'No Smoking' sign i included in the cartoon... well that's there for a good reason, I began this at 4.30am, not being able to sleep as a result of being one whole day off the cigarettes! Woohoo!! So this is probably the first thing I've drawn without having a cigarette break in around five years! Hopefully I'll stay off 'em for good this time... I just hope I don't get up at 4.30 every morning! God bless Nicotine patches!

Hey Eoin, I have a friend who claims that quiting smoking is easy, he said he's done it dozens of times! :-)
Another great cartoon - long live corny!

Keep in mind that there is really no such thing as "corny". There is only funny and not funny.

This one is very funny. :)
