IF: Immovable

It wasn't that he couldn't take a hint.  Or even that he didn't want to leave.
This week's Illustration Friday submission for the theme "immovable," is inspired by real events.  Here's the uncropped version:

And here's a little in-studio self-portrait that I shot today.  For posterity.  I've discovered that my enormous pregnant belly makes a pretty good little table when I'm working on tiny things:
The only trouble is that it jumps occasionally;)
These eggs are a commission that will be a gift for someone who is pregnant with identical twin boys.  I'm thinking that I might put some of my eggs up on etsy, and also take custom orders.  I really love making them for specific people, even if I don't know the peeps personally.

Excellent! This is so cool but please elaborate on the 'inspired by real events' - that's really got me thinking!

and many congratulations, my wife is currently working on our second, though a little way behind you a think

all the best

Love the illustration but yes -what real events?

Ah, the real events! This image arose from the experience of having a house guest stay with us for a very, very long time:)

Cheers, and thank you for the comments!

I like the uncropped version as well as the cropped. It's nice to see the text with the image. It was interesting to hear the story behind the illustration, too. Love your little bird eggs!!

Lovely eggs, and yes, I, too am wondering about the "inspired by true events" possibility! Do tell!!
