#letsmakeartforfun

I enjoyed the Instagram folktale week so much I thought I’d join another illustration challenge. Visual storytelling has really captured my imagination.

‘Lets make art for fun’ was set by children’s book illustrator Claire Powell. One wacky prompt each Friday in January.

Cattywampus – 19th Century slang for an imaginary fierce wild animal.

I pictured victorian children running away for a terrifying hairy beast.

Bumbershoot – 1920’s word for an umbrella.

I imagined a stylish 20’s socialite taking her fashionable Boston Terrier out for a nighttime tinkle on the sidewalk.

Lollygagger – An 1860’s Americanism for spending time idly.

I imagined Victorian sisters leisurely chatting in the drawing room.
