Inktober is fantastic! I’m enjoying the heck out of drawing to a new word every day and seeing what my friends and the world comes up with! Today’s prompt was “Cruel”. This was my first sketch:
Meh. A tad sad. I felt I could do better, so I kept rolling it around suddenly remembered that a real green dress is cruel, according to the Barenaked Ladies hit, “If I had a million dollars”. So:
I thought at least Canadians of a certain age would get it after a beat or two. For good measure, I put a Canadian flag tag and a bouncing “Gordon” ball. I wish I had thought to put a dijon mustard stain on it and set it in a dry-cleaning shop. Anyway, others had other non-BNL interpretations, which is so great:
- It’s a reference to Mommie Dearest, with the cruel mother and the wire hangers
- It’s a reference to current situation with Michaëlle Jean and her position as secretary general of la Francphonie
- It’s a reference to Pepsi
- It’s a reference to the state of women in the US today
It’s whatever you think. Happy Inktober!
