illustration Friday - "Alphabets" No.5


Hot damn, I'm a sucker for a bad pun!

(or is it etiquette. I can't think right now!?)
something to do with ancient British celtic linguistic variations I once heard (!??!)
anyway, here's my (pee) take on it

Great illustration and I love the reference to the pun...I believe it has something to do with minding your "pints" and "quarts" as in ale ?? I could be wrong...in any case, great illustration!

Really nice, I dig the angry-pea. I'm sure he's grimacing at the chatty cell-phone-pea but maybe he's angry b/c everyone knows those big peas taste bitter!
