Cracked


Soup Spoon could no longer contain his true feelings about Forktina.
He decided that they would tell Dish all about their torrid affair after dinner.
Of course Dish cracked at the news. They explained that they
were better suited for each others. What the couple didn't know was that
Dish wanted out of the relationship anyway. She had a handsome
Platter waiting on the side. Tuned in next week when Soup finds out
that Forktina is having a baby for Dr. Spork.
Hee hee hee!
Have a cracked weekend everyone!

Love it! Very nicely done. :)

Brilliant! I love that Dish has a smooth, cool, platter on the side.

Such a torrid love triangle. I suppose that a young and innocent Dish (her adrenaline obviously running very high after Cow's extreme stunt of jumping over the moon, no less) ran away with that worldly Mr. Spoon a little too prematurely...

Shirley said...

Wonderful work!! Really great illustration style.

Fadas & C.ª said...

What a dramatic soap opera you have here!Great idea and very original characters - the cracked dish is my favourite! ;-)

Bella Sinclair said...

BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh my goodness, Miss V! You cracked me up real good. Your kitchen is HOT HOT HOT. Whew! ssssssssssssssss

Poor Dish. The whole ordeal gave her a wrinkle. But quite honestly, she's much better off with Platter. Those two can stack very nicely together, if ya know what I mean. Old Soupy never did anything for her except scrape his head all over her face. He and Forktina were made for each other. Why, just LOOK at his toothy grin! FAAAAAAABulous! Hahahahahahaha! Such a kick-butt and hysterical illustration. I LOVE IT!!

I'm sure Forktina's evil twin sister is going to appear from nowhere in the next episode! *teehee*!

Redheaded Stepchild said...

OMG Vanessa! I am "cracking up"! Great illustration and great story! I hope Dish and Platter will be happy... I wonder if they'll be able to spoon each other?

i'm rooting for dish... always for the underdog... i don't like the looks of sopu-spoon... forktina be careful, he's going to dump you for anyone who comes in the way... boo! spoon! boo!

Diana Evans said...

Hi Vanessa!!!

you are too cute and too funny....this piece is a riot!!! I love it!!!

hugs
Diana

Susan Faye said...

That whole dish running away with the spoon story was getting pretty old and hackneyed...Love your version SO much better!! A real crack-up! Thanks!

ArtSparker said...

I particularly like the dish. What do inanimate objects get up to when we're not looking?

It's funny, and definitely a synesthesia thing, to my mind the knife is the older male, the fork the younger, and the spoon is female.

Connie M said...

Thank you for your nice comment. Very cool, retro design.

justdoodleit said...

So...something's cooking at the dinner table and the dish, from the main course, has been reduced to a side dish :) Interesting, let's see if the spoon lands in a soup in the next episode ;)

hastingshall2 said...

So cool, Vanessa. I just found your blog, via Diana Evans' blog. Your illustrations are fantastic. And the story lines are so neat.

nellita said...

Tomás Serrano said...

I´d like to see the face of Madame Knife when she discovers the couple of lovers: she had an affair with Mr. Fork three months ago and she is very jealous!

Shiva said...

Thank dear Vannesa for your visit and comment :)
your illustration is womderful

Katie White said...

Ha! Yours is more awesome. You are so creative and your style is the best I've seen. Thank you for your awesome and encouraging comments.

Brine Blank said...

That's awesome...has that old school flavor with a twist...I really enjoy the retro...

Cheryl Lynn said...

Hey, my Girly. Hope you're having a great week so far. I just wanted you to know, I'm sitting here at my job (doing absolutely NOTHING!) going through your blog. I am soooooo impressed. Your work is just magnificent. You have no idea how much you have inspired me to break out my paint, brushes, and pencils once again.

Just had to tell you, thank you for the smiles you bring with the brilliant work that you do!!!

Love you much, my dear.

Kay Aker said...

Bravo! Yet another fun fantastical piece! Drama galore!

Cheryl Lynn said...

You know what? Every time you stop by, I am inspired all the more. I'm going to keep you posted about that script, and I would love to have more information on that conference that you attend. Maybe I can scrape up the funds to attend.

Love you so much and your blog is just amazing!

Kudos and Kisses, my dear!

froggie said...

AWWWWWWWWWE SUMMMMMM! i really really dig this and my brains' going 55mp just hearing the whole story!

jazzlamb said...

WOAH!! Craziness at its ohh-la-la best. I love the illustration. The characters are so adorable!
And forktina better beware, one spoonetta on the way, and that nasty spoon is packing his bags:)

Roberta said...
