messenger


Happy Illustration Friday Saturday!  This week's prompt is "messenger", so I got some takeout. 

With all the holiday hustle and bustle going on, I was in the mood for still life.  Something lazy and comfy.  The Chinese takeout fortune cookie often contains a message that is less than memorable.  Often not even a true "fortune", but a vague general saying. 

I got one once, though, that said "You will be showered with good luck", and so I saved it.  Because it's true. 

I must have dropped it when I was a baby, and it somehow found its way back to me.

  6. Very yummy still life! I think you unintentionally created a subliminal message here. Everyone who visits you will have to get Chinese food!
