sugar rush "fat" for illustration friday


My keyboard is giving me heck...so in short: This is an older peice that I did to warn myself of the perils of giving into my sweet tooth. A long time diabetic, I have battled against the lure of the evil cake for a years. I didnt take my own warning, and now fight with my own nervous sysem for control of fluid movement, and daily functioning. I am also in pain and shake. With time and my new resolve to take myinsulin and eat right..it hopefully will improve. Until then I am on nuerontin which does help some and hopefully w'll see more participation from me ( in illo friday) both in art and commenting on other illos.
"Cake aint worth it"...it's my new motto.
Sorry about the small size and the boarder...long story. Will one day remove that boarder.

I have close family members who are diabetic, it's a very difficult road, so many temptations.

Beautiful, expressive artwork!

Cake really is evil isn't it? One piece is never enough. Well keep this illustration around to steer you on the straight and narrow. Good luck and a powerful piece. (Har har- piece, get it?)
