Kicking Archimedes's Butt (WAWE Prompt)


Trey was pretty sure this guy was the source of all his math woes.
"I'm going to kick your butt Archie!" he said.

Ah!! This is truly awesome! I enjoy everything about this! The contrast between Archimedes and Trey; in style and expressions! And, I love Trey's confidence in kicking Archie's butt! Love it! :D

MAth and I did NOT get along, so now I know who to blame! Thank you for relieving years of worry!

How would Trey grow up to count his money if he doesn't learn math? heheee Lovely painting. :D Love his braids!

Ces said...

HAhahahah! Oh yeah?! Just how exactly is Trey going to do that? This is cute Vee and look at Trey's expression. You and are a master of facial expressions.

Oh my dear. Yes, lets do LOTS of math kicking butt since it was the source of many of my school day woes! Love it Vanessa. Fun, great character expression, lovely spots of color... perfect! Thanks for sharing my dear and have a great week. ;)

You don't know how timely this image is Vee, we are having to do math several hours a day here for a retest. So we are math-ing it up like crazy around here, and Cyan hates math! Love this one, it is so creative and fun, love the contrasts, the intensity of the color and the eyes are just fabulous.

rmsmi said...

This is great. I love how both are eyeing each other.

Tamara Henderson said...

Cute kid! I never really like math either my favorite subjects were english and history.

Francisco Martins said...

hahahaaaaaaaa!! oh Vanessa, you are just something! I'm laughing loud, you are so much FUN! :)
You're right...I used to have killer instincts towards that guy he he he! (i thing every single kid does - at least the ones like myself that always sucked at math :P)

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!
V. Newton for president!! :)

nina seven said...

too funny, v! what a great character. i think i feel the same way as he does about math!

justdoodleit said...

Hahahaha...Hilarious! I like Trey's attitude and Archimedes' amused look that seems to say "Don't count your chicken's too soon kid...Oh, wait do you know to count at all?"

AtelierBrigitte said...

Look at that expression in her face! Splendid!

amba said...

and you have a big heart, Vanessa! thank you :) your comments always make me smile (OHHHHH DIOS MIO! mmmh... when I was a child, I connected math to music, so it wasn't a big deal... but when I grew up...)

Cheryl Lynn said...

BOY!! I COULDN'T AGREE MORE WITH TREY! Oh sorry, was I yelling? Please forgive me. Math and I just did not get along. Even now, I'm intimated by numbers (unless it's a big one with a lot of zeros behind it in a check for moi):)

Love your style, girlie. As per usual, those facial expressions you do so well make for a fun visit to your neck of the woods.

I enjoyed our talk, hope we can do it again soon.

Much love to you!

Charmaine D'Silva said...

Super cute V! As always

TJ Lubrano said...

Ciaoooo V!! How are you? Sorry I haven't stopped by in a while!

Have a lovely week & till next time
Xoxo

L-O-V-E it. cracked me up i say! and to think, after all these years, i FINALLY know who to blame! and his expression is spot on awesome.

Bella Sinclair said...

HEEHEEHEEE!!! Good thing Archimedes doesn't have a butt. But he looks worried just the same! You are a TOTAL CRACK UP! And what a cutie Trey is! He looks like Jaden Smith, no? :D

Cheryl Lynn said...

NESSA! YOUR BANNER IS FABULOUS! I love it. It is totally awesome! I love you in the car and the look on the cats face. And your caption is perfect for your fun and mayhem, "The Craziness of Vanessa Brantley-Newton." How befitting!

Love you much!

amba said...

thank you for your sweet hug Vanessa :)

Shell said...

Being not a math lover, I can totally relate with Trey!!!
I love your new header..and the cat looks like a cartoon version of my cat, Mabel.

Megan Coyle said...

Bella Sinclair said...

No freakin' way! I was watching Top Chef last night, and one of the contestants -- this Southern guy -- made a chocolate dessert topped with crispy bacon bits!!!! And I was thinking, hmmmmmmm, holy cow, I wonder what THAT tastes like. Well, jeez, if Nester says it's good, it's GOTTA be gooOOOooood! Now THAT's a lotta lovin.

Matalonga Jorge said...

Hmmmm, when did you change your header? Love the new one, just wondering if you changed it without me even noticing until now.

Amy C said...
