    Default The past without words

    Someone I caught up with from college asked me what I've been up to. Smart-ass that I am, I sent him this illustration instead of text:

    Default We're All Dummies on this Bus :)

    Thanks again, Graham!

    Okay, some Photoshop, and a little smirk because I'm sure Wiley will never hire me again to do a Dummies book.

    Default Anatomically accurate Donald Duck

    I drew a duck and posted on the Xara Gallery, so this is just trying to strike a balance:

    Default Diet Beer

    I thought of this when I was recovering from a broken leg earlier this year; the medications were partially responsible.

    I pose the question: why do we have diet soda, diet meals, diet candy, but light beer? Why not "Diet Beer"?

    Default Autumn Scene...not.

    This is not a photo, at least not the composition. I carefully trimmed around several different leaves, defined them as Painter nozzles, and then stroked a little while. I then added a little 55mm digital effects (a suite of PS plug-ins), and hopefully the result looks natural and photographic.

    Interesting question Gary. I'd say a light beer in the UK refers to a lower alcohol content, not a lower calorie content.

    Good sketch tho

    Thanks for that, egg.

    Reduced alcohol content is also part of the "light" claim here in the USA, but it's sold as a "less filling" drink because there are also less carbohydrates...which is part and parcel of less alcohol.

    But in the final reel, the US breweries (foreign-owned, but still on US soil!) feel the term "diet" is synonymous with a sissy drink, thus the fudge term "light".

    My Best,

    Gary

    I think you took a walk in the woods, re-enacting the Blair Witch Project with a torch, and it was just there.
