Nonsensical Spam Project: Sleep Late...

New work! How exciting. Been so busy with new job and everything that I haven't done a new illustration in a while.

As soon as I got this spam comment, I loved it. It's not even that nonsensical... in fact, it makes perfect sense! Click for larger.

"Since it is the early worm that gets eaten by the bird, sleep late...."

From the comment on my H! outfit post here. Just don't click the dots, pretty sure they're links to porn sites. Excellent.

This has been the Easter bank holiday weekend, so it's been ALL about not getting eaten by the early bird, definitely. Been getting up at about midday every day, it's been amazing. It's going to be a shock going back to work tomorrow, with my 5.45am getting-up time. Sigh.

It was so great drawing birds again, I really enjoy it and haven't for ages. Here are a few scans from my sketch book, some of which made it into the illustration:

Oh, also, the type used in this illustration is called 'Arsenale White', found on Dafont. It's cute.

If you like this post, don't forget to tweet about it! Seems rather fitting, said the birds...
