Illustration Friday: Celebrate


The IF topic today is "Celebrate." Hmmmm... I guess I could celebrate a lot of things today; it is my father's 80-somethingth birthday today, tomorrow is Valentine's Day, I will be cutting a tapestry from the loom either later today or tomorrow, and today may be a BIG day to celebrate as a grandmother. But, in spite of all those things to celebrate, I have chosen to post a little watercolor sketch done from a photo my son sent me when he went through London a few years ago. It is of a group of the British League of Pessimists celebrating "National No Smile Day." We need more of these. Let's replace Valentine's Day with a No Smile Day... it would be cheaper, and it cracks me up! Many more laughs on a No Smile Day than on any other day, because what is the first thing we rebels do when told not to smile? Now don't you smile... I mean it!!
(I confess that I love the guy with all the buttons on holding a stick that doesn't have a sign on it.)

I'm sorry, I already broke the rule because not only did I smile after seeing your illustration, I laughed. This is very clever and I like your style.
