Poor Tyler... is there a bucket handy!!
Can you just picture his stage mom off to the side..."One more can of Nutra Kid and you've got it baby!"

Vanessa you are so clever and creative!

Bella Sinclair said...

Aww, poor Tyler indeed. But he's going to be one healthy kid! Hey, didn't anyone tell him to spit it out?

I saw this video the other day of Orson Welles doing a Paul Mason champagne commercial. I think he had the same problem as Tyler:

Hope you're feeling a little warmer.

Sup V! Great character and name for a drink. You always get a great expression that feels all loose and yet has structure- that's a battle for me. Nice work- have a great weekend!

Tomás Serrano said...

Sabbio said...

Very humorous take on the theme. Hey, Tyler wears the same t.shirt as your banner image!

Poor kid. There's got to be an easier way to earn some money ... maybe donate plasma? (I guess that could leave you a little pale too.):)
I love his expression, and the details in the can! You know how to make me smile!
