Ouch My Head

Whiner Namowal: My headache's back.
Stop That Namowal: You know where the Advil is.
Whiner Namowal: It's like someone stuck a carpet tack on the right side of my head!
Stop That Namowal: Oh please. On a pain scale of one to ten this is a one.
Whiner Namowal: but... but... it's been bothering me for more than a week.
Stop That Namowal: Better start writing that tear-jerking autobiography. Ouch, My Head: Whiner Namowal's Ten Day Journey with a Slightly Annoying Headache. That should get you booked on all the talk shows. Don't forget to mention those hangnails, paper cuts and acne.

Your tete a tete (add your own diacritics, please) illustration is wonderful! I wish you could have seen Avant Duck. Run yourself a google on the collection/show and I truly truly believe 1. you'll be happy you did and 2. you will not smack me for wasting your time.

Found it!
I like Ceci n'est pas une canard the best!
Years ago I did a rubber duck spoof on the old Tournée du Chat Noir poster, but the Avent Ducks are better.

Reach for the advil now! It's a beautiful illustration, don't know how you can do something so lush while feeling so poorly.

I don't think a headache that's been bothering you for a week qualifies as a whine-able. (I would take it more seriously.) Take care of yourself, Namowal.

Namowal said...

Thanks, Sally,
That's Painter's "Impressionist" brush (adjusted by me to add more color variation) you're looking at. I think it added some zing.
Don't worry, I'll see a doctor if it doesn't go away. :)

I'm worried about your headache, too. Is it a migraine? Hope you feel better! Beautiful illustration.

Hi Stray g.
Thanks for your concern.
I don't think it's a migraine- it's not that painful. I'm going to see a doctor this morning (there's a walk in place nearby) just in case. It's probably no big deal. :)
