Pablo Honey

What can I say? I personally rather like this one despite it being very rushed. It is based on Picasso's Woman in Hat and as a cartoon idea is probably as old as Cubism. But, as rush jobs go, the elements hang together quite well. Picasso actually looks like Picasso too!
Worrying aspects? I've noticed that any young woman I draw has a very generous embonpoint. Why is this worrying? It's because I'm a leg man, myself.

" 'O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy."
Welly well well. Today I am a heppy heppy Ket. My world is awash with seas of smugness and nothing will assuage the briney deep. For I am, dear reader, the winner of Caption Competition 62. If you click on the montage it will open in a new window and you can gaze upon the marvels within. I won by a hair's breadth, but by Jove, it feels good! Did I mention that I'm this week's winner? Did I? I did?! Well, fancy that! Me, a winner! I still can't quite believe it.
I didn't think I would have time to enter this week as I had a very full timetable. I think there is still plenty of room for improvement, technically speaking (that overcoat is a bit wince inducing), but I think the rest is nicely understated.
I won't say anymore than that in case this over-inflated ego goes pop! Cheesy grin doesn't even come close.
