About this drawing

This was based on the Illustration Friday theme, "Sticky".

I love chewing bubblegum, and as we all know, if you chew bubblegum for a while, then take it out and start playing with it, it gets really messy and sticky.  So the idea for my illustration was just that, show someone who had made a mess of things, and had bubblegum stuck on the fingers.

But as I was painting my image (yes, that is my own left hand in the picture, and no, I did not have any sticky stuff on my fingers), I wasn't able to get the bubblegum to stand out properly from the colour of the fingers, therefore I decided to change things a little.

I painted the bubblegum in blue colour.

And obviously then it didn't look like bubblegum any more, so I decided to give more of an SF-slant to my image, and call it, Sticky Alien Goo (sounds like something my friend Pablo Dictter would come up with)!

Hi there just wanted to give you a brief heads
up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried
it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

Hi there! I could have sworn I've been to this website before but after reading through some of the post I realized it's new to
me. Anyways, I'm definitely glad I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back

Heroin, morphine, Oxycontin, Vicodin, Tylenol 3--these are common opiate drug
names with which most of the people are familiar.

I've been browsing online more than three hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like
yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the
net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
