Little Piggies

7:48 AM

     This little piggy went to market.
This little piggy stayed home.
This little piggy had roast beef,
This little piggy had none.
And this little piggy went wee wee wee all the way home...

I decided to illustrate this nursery rhyme today. It doesn't really make sense when all the pigs are connected on a foot. I mean, if one pig goes to market, they all go to market, right? So really, I don't think there's very much logic to this nursery rhyme (as opposed to all the other logical, fact-filled nursery rhymes...) As a kid I always felt bad for the little piggy who had no roast beef. I mean, how sad is it to be characterized by something you didn't do? But now I think the idea of pigs eating roast beef is kind of gross. It's just a few pastures away from cannibalism, you know? It seems a little close to home. As in, wee wee wee all the way home.

  1. I just received the request from a Miss Mia for a printed and framed copy of this drawing. In her words, "Wow... She is an amazing artist! Can I have that? I want to put it in a frame in my room. Can I show it to my class? It's so funny. Your friend Annie is better than - than - I don't know, something really amazing. Like Harry Potter. Yeah, Annie is better than Harry Potter!"

    1. Ahhh, yes...Good to know that children get my humor. Wait 'til I tell Potter I've outdone him!

  2. I know, right? It's just even more funny because at six, she hasn't even seen Harry Potter yet. She just knows it's "cool." Tonight she's been drawing and she keeps trying to draw piggies on different things. She tried to draw a hand with swine-fingers... It looks more like a bowling ball with meatballs on the ends. Miss you, friend!
