Polly's Pal, Pup & Pachyderm.

Polly wanted an illustration of her husband.  He is an avid Alabama fan—the Crimson Tide.  I suggested an illustration of him enjoying a game with a Crimson Tide elephant.  (Someone please tell what a Crimson Tide has to do with elephants.)  She requested that their pup, Brinkley be included in the drawing.  "No problem," I says.  And away I went.


I think this was the longest time I've been away from my blog without a traveling excuse. The loss of my computer really threw me off my game. I will be getting back into regular posting. I will HAVE TO because I have a number of request pending that I need to get done.

I appreciate your patience and the visits to this bit of insanity on the internet.

God speed.

Rick, that is hilarious! I can visualize my husband sitting next to a huge Vicking! Yeah, he's a Minnesota fan. Not sure what sport this guy likes, but at our house it's any team that's not from Michigan (enough said about the Lions, ugh.)

Oop,s I meant Vikings, hehe
I guess you could figure that out all by yourself.

To Ginger: Yes, I could see that. It would be a fun one—vicking or viking.

Rick that is an awesome drawing! And if you ever find out the link between the Tide and the elephant, please let the rest of us know!

Great job, Rick! I especially like the Elephant Chips touch! I, also, would like to know the connection.

Welcome back!

That is so cool.At least you didn't suddenly lose your touch during your 'absence.' :)

Another job well done. I love the lounging elephant.

If you want to know the story, I googled it and you can read about it here:

It started back in 1930 and had to do with the size of the linemen. It's a cute story.

Very cute. I hope the guy got the memo about digital television, he still has rabbit ears. Won't be watching much of anything without the box.
I love that the elephant has his legs crossed. Who knew an elephant could be so flexible.
