Tweedledum and Tweedledee/Flying

A monstrous crow flying by overhead pacified the contentious brothers in Through the Looking Glass (the illustration friday prompt is flying).

maybe they figured they'd better be quiet, or else the crow from Hichtcock's Central Casting would settle it for them.

Living in the Land of Nod
Trustin' their fate to the Hands of God
They pass by so silently
Tweedle-dee Dum and Tweedle-dee Dee


Not much of a comment, I guess...

Their slightly different faces proof there´s no hasty copy + paste at Sanford´s...

ArtSparker said...

Ger- I have also made one of them relatively slender and athletic, possibly a reflection of faical asymmetry/left-right brain stuff. Or careless drawing...

Jasmine said...

Oh they re good. Did you use your lovely spider for the hint of the crow?

ArtSparker said...

Jasmine -

No, It's a different cut paper piece.

Linda said...

I'd be ducking under something...an soon-LOL! That's the impression I get from their looks..

The crow might land and hatch these two eggs.

I have seen these guys somewhere in Sweden before.

The little twins are really brave, just a suspicious look in their eyes, no fear, no terror, though they´re under such terrifying shadow.

The photo is so accurate...
I´ve been recently caught by these verses from XII century:
Inmortalis fieret / Ibi manens homo / Arbor ibi quaelibet / Suo gaudet pomo / Viae myrrha, cinnamo / Flagrant, et amomo.../ Coniectari poterat / Dominus ex domo. A friend of mine translated them into Spanish for me. But I was impressed with them before understanding completely the meaning...

California Girl said...

they were my favorite character(s) in the movie & book because they were always fighting, just like my brother and I.

Asja said...

they don't seems scared or upset that the monstrous crow is flying over their heads , just a little annoyed :)
great work!

Just the hint of the giant crow is wonderful! My own rule is to never look up when a large bird is flying over, however...
