Illustration Friday - "Pet Peeves" all for fun!


Hi Everyone....

I had to create a Spring like scene this week...and who doesn't love Paris in the Springtime....The pet peeve...when you travel and the locals don't know where things are...or another one could be that when you travel the locals pretend not to speak English...lol...or when peopel travel to France and don't eat cheese.....

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend...Happy Easter!!



Cheers,

Diana

Haha that's funny. So colorful.

I live in a small town and when people ask me for directions I dont know what to tell them because I'm bad with directions. "Follow your instinct, you'll get there eventually"

"I love Paris in the Springtime"! Nice illustration, makes me want to jump on a jet across the ocean and eat cheese (and croissants) and drink coffee, and why not have some chocolate too! Thank's for the memories of Paris. Happy Easter to you too.

what gets me in paris is trying to escape from the street toilet asap before the whole thing flushes itself right there and then in the street...otherwise paris is magical, will never forget my first sight of the eiffel tower.

Well, hmm, sometimes the best discoveries come when you're wandering around trying to find something else! I'm not very peevish when I'm traveling... things that would drive me nuts at home seem completely supportable. Now you've got me all wanderlustful. Thanks for the Paris daydreams!
