Illustration Friday - "Pet Peeves"

For this weeks Illustration Friday I had like a bazillion ideas for pet peeves (speeding fine doubled signs, the way too happy psycho kids on Barney... and the list went on) but I went with something I battle every summer-dandelions killing my grass:(  I did the illustration from the grasses point of view.  It's done in gouache (still learning) and took about 6 hours.

Yep I see a few of them out in the grass right now! Guess it's time for the old weed killer!

Your work is really great!

KEEP THE WEEDS AWAY FROM IT! i think it was an old, woody woodpecker or T&J cartoon, where some sappy panda that buys a little flower and this nasty weed keeps choking it, every time the panda isn't looking...
TOTALLY reminded me of that! classic!
