IF: Nothing to use to make a sail...


After months of using a spoon to fashion the only tree on the island into a raft, a fatal flaw appeared in the escape plan...highlighting yet another reason to never get stranded with a nudist colony...



On a related note...after the somewhat disappointing IF post with the Squidward tentacles going crazy I retackled the octopus theme...thanks for inspiration for the Pick Pocket Octopus from Friday Frog's work, Chris Leavens, and again Detlef for originally making me want to try an octopus...Prisma color on illustration board...

Brian, this is truly very funny!!! LOL! I really like the colored illustration that you did. You have a wonderful sense of humor and imagination.

Man, those guys are going to be stuck on that island for a while. I'm glad you chose to draw the nudist colony as it should be drawn -- old and overweight.

As for the octopus illustration, really nice work. The reflections in the water are top-notch. I also like that you incorporated the Groucho mask. The details in your work are always well-done.

Fantastic. Brilliant!

Perhaps that spoon could be used as an oar!

Ok ...maybe not.
Quite a predicament to be in.

The top one is hilarious Brian, and the bonus illo at the bottom is simply fantastic! Way to go, pushing yourself here.

Love the raft! I guess the moral is: keep your clothes on, just like Mom said.

I'm not so sure they're stuck. They all look pretty flabby to me. Maybe they can take turns being the sail.

heheheheheeeee......lol.

Great line but the characters really give it that extra dose of humor. That is just awesome.

Nice. The details on the octopus piece are quit nice: the frog is my favorite.

Your sail piece is very inventive/funny too.
