Sugary


The Bradshaw children just knew that they could pass their cotton candy
disguises off on their parents. This ended up being a very sugary and sticky situation.

Delightful! I love cotton candy... it brings back so many memories. My favorite was when my husband took me to my a Red Sox game and as the vendors walked around I asked him if anyone was selling cotton candy. He looked at me like I had grown a third head! Fun illustration, thanks for sharing. =)

That birthday card rocks- Love it! Happy 45th birthday. I like the cotton candy hair- that would be a mess. I actually am scared of cotton candy. When I was a kid I ate too much one time, and it came back up. So I always associated it with getting sick. That's my cotton candy story. But GREAT WORK!!! Thanks for the comments:)

We went to the Texas State Fair yesterday, and we got an extra bag of cotton candy to bring home. Love the stuff and love this illustration too. Great work as always!

You are so creative it's scary sometimes! Who-would-a-thunk-it? You of course. I Love cotton candy and maybe just a little bit more because of you. Remember as we get better not older our birthday celebrations last longer, so you are good for at least another 6 months. You're only 45 once, so please share more of your 45th year firsts as the months go by. I see you having a day filled with your special brand of accomplishments and success!

Why does this make me giggle so much? I LOVE it! Maybe it's their mischievous knowing glances, like they're all about to burst out in squeals of laughter at any moment. Like an anchorman trying to contain himself from going BAAAAAHAHAHAHA after a funny news story. Maybe it's because I can see my kid doing exactly the same thing. Ooooh, better not show her this one. Thanks for the pick-me-up!

Super-awesome! I love your sense of humor. Mustaches are almost always funny, in my opinion, and you certainly proved that here.
