Canadian CLIQUE

This cartoon was done for an invitation to a Canadian Thanksgiving feast next month. The concept ("meet the Canadians") and examples depicted here were solely the responsibility of the Canadian client. No Canadians or animals were injured in the making of this illustration.

CANNED Famine Relief


I don't have my art applications this week so I'm reposting an entry I did for 100% (good) in January. Thanks for visiting! ellen

Plumpy'nut, more commonly known as Plumpy, is a peanut-based food for use in famine relief which was formulated by André Briend, a French scientist in 1999.

It is a high protein and high energy peanut-based paste in a foil wrapper that can be distributed to children at home rather than in specialist feeding stations and can be eaten without any preparation. It tastes like a slightly sweeter kind of peanut butter. It is categorized by the WHO as a Ready-to-Use Therapeutic Food (RUTF).

Homage






















A poem by John Greenleaf Whittier begins, "The clustered spires of Frederick stand/Green-walled by the hills of Maryland." This is my homage to Frederick, the small city in which I reside. Though the Baltimore and D.C. burbs creep closer every year, the county is still largely agricultural - thus the blueberry bushes and requisite cow.

HEAVY
The late wonderful Israel "Iz" Kamakawiwoʻole, Hawaiian musican.























Iz was nicknamed "The Gentle Giant" by his admirers. He was described as always cheerful and positive, and he was best known for his love of the land and of the people of Hawaiʻi. He died of weight-related respiratory illness in 1997 at the age of 38.

This is a newer version of a painting done years ago. Always regretted selling it so I've done another "garden".
