Roots


Visiting the White House in Washington, D.C. was a representative of an all-white talibangelical lobbying group.
Upon opening the door of a guest bathroom near the Oval Office, she was met with a sight so disturbing, so unspeakably unsavory that she was immediately driven mad, and as a result has become unmindful of her appearance and is now unable to make her weekly trips to the hair salon.
What she witnessed was sordid and repellant to such a degree that her mind shattered and she instantly lost all fashion acumen.

A pig-pile of pudgy writhing amply lubricated flesh heaved upon the slippery floor. Nearby lay what appeared to be several hastily discarded blue Armani suits.

Later that day, a sharp eyed leftist blogger was watching a quickly called and unannounced press conference and noticed that two administration officials, Karl (Puffy Svengali) Rove and Scotty (Piglet McMoonface) McClelland, who appeared flushed and out of breath, were wearing identical rumpled, stained blue suits.

The blogger’s keyboard smoked as he broke the news that these blue stained suits could bring down the administration.

(Since Roots is the Illustration Friday theme this week, I decided to draw a madwoman who is no longer interested in having her roots touched up. I drew this at the beach today and I was trying to think of a vile sight that could drive someone mad. When we got home I painted and scanned it. Pencil, ink and watercolor)

Hello. I enjoyed your very expressive illustration. There are many girls with dark roots these days... Keep up the good work!

Fabulous! She looks quite shocked out of her mind. Great face and wonderful hair.
