Sorry, I am a little later than usual with this post.... punching is not getting old but taking pictures and editing and uploading and downloading and all the various hoops I jump through to share this stuff isn't exactly fun and exciting anymore.
I think I need an attitude adjustment today.
Maybe this fisherman does too - look at his depressed face. I don't think the fish are biting...
Normally I just make a character and don't attach it to anything until it's final resting place but I had to stop and make something with this guy since I wanted to draw on his fishing line.
If you are giving this to a fishing fan you probably want to add the reel part of the rod and reel. Me... I had to think several seconds before I could come up with that highly technical word - "reel". I only like fish on a plate in a restaurant or on display in an aquarium near the ocean on vacation.
I thought this would make a decent retirement card - "...a bad day of fishing is better than any day at the office!"
Of course you could always give him a happy expression and use this as a Father's Day card.
