“It’s Carl Week” Keeps Going

October 28, 2012

See the post for full details.

Above: Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch of Carl with Rita in a 7 x 9 inch handbound journal I made with Magnani Annigoni Designo paper. Painted with gouache.  

Sometimes Carl hangs out with Rita. (She's a little self-absorbed, but Carl stands by her—they have history. She doesn't have to worry about the ice cream cone—Carl is lactose intolerant.)

Don't know who Carl is? You can check this link for his first appearance here. Or you can click on "Carl" in the category list in the left column.

    Lovin’ Carl Week…and the text on this page with Rita cracks me up! So maybe I shouldn’t have sent those dinosaur toys from the grandkids’ toy box to the thrift store…always a pleasure to view your renderings of animals. fun stuff!

    Am sitting staring at a big, and very colourful , lump of dinosaur poo, and nothing looks like icecream. Mostly bile green with black “muck” strips through it and a worryingly bright red bit. Carl would be proud of it. Odd the things we end up with in front of the computer. There’s an Eyqptian scarab beetle and a tiny pottery dalek stuck on top of the monitor as well.

    Ack Dianne, say it isn’t so. Well you can always go to the thrift store and buy them back (and they can tell you all the adventures they’ve had in the interim). Schleich (I think that’s how it’s spelled, no one is sitting next to me) are available a lot of places as are Safari animal replicas! Glad you’re enjoying Carl. I have to say I’m particularly fond of Rita, 4 years old and all washed up!

    I hope you are referring to fossilized dino poo! If not, don’t explain.

    I gave fossilized dino poo to the kids of my vet (she was a family friend) and they would put it out on her new couch when she got a new puppy, and startle her into thinking the pup had had an accident—endless fun.

    I’ve been corrected, it’s a lump of fossilized dinosaur bile,I’ve been using as a paperweight. Not too sure how much better that makes it. Fun colours though

    Leslie, bile? That’s interesting. Is it bile or is it something regurgirated like an owl casting? It sounds very cool!
