Call Waiting by Bad-Kitty Call Waiting by Bad-Kitty
Don't you absolutely hate it when someone says they'll call you later or something and you spend all day and/or night waiting for the call that never comes? I'm unfortunately one of those girls who'll sit by the phone all night like an over-eager puppy waiting at the door for their owner. So this is me. This actually isn't a picture that was driven by a particular event or something, it's just a sketch that turned into a print. This is certainly not the best linoleum block I've ever done (I screwed up a lot if you look hard enough, please don't) but it's not the worst thing I've ever done either. That and if they're just little mistakes and you've spent all the time and effort on cutting it, then shouldn't you present it anyway?

Wow, ...least I know I'm not the only one...this is a nice sharp image that shows the exact emotions, ones I am going through now. My boyfriend said he would call me in a day or so..it's now been a day or so and I am constantly making glances towards my mobile phone ><;...Very nice image though *favs*

Awe *cuddles* I'm sorry you're feeling that way, but I'm glad you like the picture. It's a sucky feeling, but I must admit to being pleased about the way that it came out.

I like it. And I hate it when people don't call when they say they will too. It's so disappointing.

Great lino, really. I praise you for your effort on all that whiteness. Did your hands survived?

They did as a matter of fact, thanks for asking. I've gotten a lot better at not gouging the living daylight out of my fingers when I'm cutting, so um...yeah...way to go me. :dance:

Hah...great illustration :-)

I know the feeling of expecting a phonecall, and not receiving it - sucks for sure. :-) I think my "call" in my last piece was more of a metaphor though :-)

Thank you for sharing - I love it!

Hey thanks! And yeah, I kinda sorta totally completely know the feeling (three guesses as to when it was drawn =P ). Glad you like it! I was pretty pleased how it came out myself. Heh, I've got this other linoleum block that I'm DYING to cut out, but as of yet, I just haven't had the freaking time. But stay tuned...one day it'll show up here..

Heh, yeaaaaaah. The problem is, I'll do all the stuff I need to do and then I'll get back from distracting myself and they still won't have called and then it's just me and the voices in my head again. Oh well. I am bound and determined to not be angsty and/or bitter about not getting phone calls. Who needs phones when we've got the internet anyway?


Thanks! I'm glad you like 'em. They always seem to be received well. I really like doing 'em too. The biggest trick is actually starting it. Also, paying attention to the backwards factor and what you're supposed to carve out and not supposed to carve out. That's a bitch when you mess up. Fortunetely, I remembered that this one was going to have text on it when I started it so I didn't end up carving the letters out so they'd print backwards. THAT would have sucked.
