IF: Old-Fashioned


Did this illustration of Zucco in an old-fashioned bath tub a while ago. Wasn't quite sure where I was going with it but it somehow evolved to incorporate the following friend's facebook status:

WTF is that?! found this in my bathtub this morning. first I thought it was a clump of hair. ick, i'm so disgusted.

The actual post included a photo of a house centipede. It's a pretty rare sight for us city folks. Needless to say, we were all pretty grossed out. Never did get around to posting this illo and thought this Illustration Friday topic was the perfect reason to.

Yeah, I lived in an old house with a tub like this. Pretty cool. I've also experienced morning like this - pretty scary! Great work here!

THE DREADED HOUSE CENTIPEDE LOL!!! I never saw one until I move to OH...I was at a friends house talking and saw some million legged something 'float' across the carpet...the 8 years I've lived here I've ran across about 30 of them at different locations...I don't mind catching snakes, lizards, turtles, crawdeads...even the occasional spider...but these things freak me out...great illo...

I could live in reasonable peace with a centipede if I had a tub like that - better than cockroaches anyday! :D
Love the illo - a lot cuter than gross. Just a little scary. ;)
