Firemen Frosting

7:55 AM

I thought this would be cooler than it turned out to be. I wanted to draw a giant birthday cake - so big that it took a firehose to get it frosted. But I think in the end it looks like the firemen are just shooting water at the cake, and that just doesn't make any sense. Maybe if the flames on the candles were bigger, it would be believable that they were trying to put out a fire? But no, it's meant to be a frosting hose. You know, just one of those standard-issue fireman frosting hoses.

I drew this on a recent plane trip and as I was finishing up, the lady in the seat behind me said that her son had been watching me draw it from beginning to end and he would love to see it up close. So I handed over my sketchbook and gave awkward commentary about how the hose is a giant frosting dispenser...It's funny how this drawing seemed normal to me until I suddenly had to explain to a five-year-old why I was drawing it. And the truth is - I have no idea where it came from. It just gave me something to draw, I guess, which is reason enough.
