Enough is Enough

Enough is Enough mark 1

This was my first idea last week for ‘Enough’ but I adhere to the advice one given to me never to use my first idea; but that person didn’t say I had to leave it lying around under the coffee cup.

This is an idea that has been entertaining me for some time (if you are wondering what I’m up to, Google Walter Richard Sickert’s painting ‘Ennui’ [boredom] and get a bit of free art history).

    The new additions to the Gallery are wonderful!

    Central Park locations are still considered good…

  2. April 25, 2008 at 9:43 pm

    loving your work- great drawings and sense of humour!

  3. April 28, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    You have unique and wonderful way of looking at things and the drawing to pull it off. The New Yorker stuff is outstanding…

  4. April 29, 2008 at 6:34 am

    Hey!…thanks 4 dropping by!…Love your drawings…there’s a real energy and honesty about them which makes them fresh and alive…particularly like (‘he simply walked away’ and ‘leap’)!…nice work!

  5. April 29, 2008 at 1:17 pm

    I love your Pipe dreams, and I don’t think you’re alone in this..!

  6. May 14, 2008 at 7:01 pm

    From across a crowded room, the sparks did fly-that’s how I first encountered who would be my future husband when I met him 31 years ago from across a crowded pedestrian walkway at an outdoor artshow.
    Nice job on the “electricity” between humans effort.

  7. May 15, 2008 at 2:33 am

    Clever pun! I never would have thought of that. Thanks for your comments on mine. What fun to be in a camper right now – as long as you have some good weather!

  8. May 19, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    I love ‘electricity’ -in a crowded place where everyone else is faceless and nonescript except for that special someone. Brilliant! I chuckled at the ‘twuck’ explanation for ‘wide’ too. I used to say ‘lowwy’ myself once 😉 Thanks for dropping by!

  9. May 25, 2008 at 10:57 am

    I like your cartoons of everyday-life!

  10. May 28, 2008 at 6:11 am

    i like your sense of humor…especially fail and the curse of the cargo pants…that has happened to me many times.

  11. May 29, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    There’s some very witty stuff here, I chuckled and carried on, keep it going! Thanks for your comments too!

  12. May 30, 2008 at 10:34 pm

    Funny & clever stuff! I’m enjoying your quirky take on the topics, & that penguin family is especially deftly drawn.

  13. May 31, 2008 at 12:01 pm

    I’m becoming a fan! Can’t wait to see what you come up with each week for IF. 🙂 \

    Love your humor!!

  14. June 4, 2008 at 3:43 pm

    connie, when i look at all your work at once, it’s wonderful and inspiring. you have a great, funny sense of humor and your simple drawings get it across perfectly.

  15. June 5, 2008 at 7:47 pm

    Hi Connie,
    I like the loose and fun feel of your line. You were so kind to leave a note on my blog. I’ll be back to visit.

    I have really enjoyed reading through all your wonderful stuff here. I particularly loved ‘leap’ and ‘elect ricity’. Your stuff is very funny and entertaining. I’ll keep looking.

    No illustration for June 13! You aren’t really going to miss a day, are you? There are a lot of us out here wanting to see what you come up with each week.

    I can’t expect anyone to feel sorry for me, but across on the continent, the cost of trasmitting data was so high, that I had to wait till our return to gool ol’ Blighty, hence the wait. Connie

    I love this illustration! You’re right, I do see someone I know in the illustration, punchline! lol! Have a wonderful weekend!

    Glad you’re back. “Punchline” is wonderful, but my guess is that you’ve got several other ideas for the same theme. It’s your kind of subject.

  21. June 14, 2008 at 8:37 pm

    very cool! Your stuff has a very New Yorker Illustration type vibe… I like how you experiment with your drawing styles

    🙂 and neuroses are always a comic plus!

    I really enjoyed your Punchline. It brought back fond memories of a good friend in grad school. Ah, good times, good times. And I LOVE your granny fighting death and the jogging accordion guy! Hysterical! Keep drawing, Connie. You brighten my day!

  23. June 18, 2008 at 8:42 pm

    Nice entries for “Punchline”… cool technique on the penguins (the artist penguin is my favorite), great line of action on Death… Go Granny Go!

    Connie, you’ve got a wild sense of humor! Have you tried sending your work to the New Yorker? I think they’d be very lucky to have you.

    I love the grandmas and the unplanned baby one and the accordion ipod, that’s great!!!!

  25. July 5, 2008 at 6:07 am

    Thank you so much for visiting my site and commenting. I love your work, you show humor so well in your pieces! I especially loved your “Heavy” entry. A great idea! 🙂

    “21st Century Ennui” is great. I did need the refresher course on the original painting, which you so thoughtfully provided, but when I saw it I said “Oh, that one,” looked back at yours, laughed. Nicely done.

    Just looked back through the entire gallery. What a wonderful collection, and every drawing in it deserves a second look.

    The baby in “Baby” is wonderful.

    I still love “Wild peeves” and “Pet Peeves.”

    Oh dear! My guess is that at least a few people who click on the new “foggy” cartoon will recognize the situation…..

    I love the singing coming from the bathroom.

  29. July 13, 2008 at 4:08 am

    I knew I could count on the British perspective to shed some light on the subject of fog.

  30. August 17, 2008 at 7:14 pm

    ohh i liv your humor anlot of your illos made me laugh and giggle. i too remember i places a comment on your heinz canned illo way back.. really now, you remind me of my grandma in california. she was great in drawing when i was small i remember how i wish she never had stopped drawing too. 8) thanks again for visiting my blog and now i would link yours.

  31. August 22, 2008 at 3:20 pm

    Hi Connie,

    You’ve got lovely humour and it’s in a great simple form.
    Very clever done!

    Greetz, Sanne

    I could not understand some of them. Don’t you think there could be some footnote of the kind you had on one of your recent drawings where a man about to jump to his death gets telephone attention, and you said this was inspired by a newspaper article etc.

    For instance “Partied out” with that lonely cat — ¿walking towards sundown? And the figure in the foreground — ¿has a barbecue?

    And also, I think you should disable those Snap Shot ads that keep popping up to hide your drawing, since some of the drawings are really beautiful.

    Chapeau.

    Been reading your blog now for quite some time and really love it. I don’t know if it’s your style or not , but do you think you could do a post on the oil spill in the gulf?

    I love your thoughts and opinions, and would love to see your comments on this sad event.
