This weeks IF word is Clutter.
I've been busy with work and remodeling around the house for the past few months so by the time I get an idea and get it finished it's usually Thursday night or Friday morning. Too late for posting. Most times I don't get the idea finished.
Since I have a few ideas Cluttering up my sketch book/computer from IF's past I figured they would be appropriate for this weeks post.
The first one is from the week when Seed was the word-

As you can see I grew up watching cartoons in the 70s-80s.
Obviously I didn't have time to finish coloring it up.

This one is from a couple of weeks ago when the word was Detach-

I looked up the word and came up with the definition of Detachment, which referred to a special person or group sent on a mission. In this case Pirates use the detachment to send one pirate who is unliked or has been especially bad out on a dingy with the captains parrot, who is disliked because he never shuts up. So the detachment is a form of punishment.
I finished the line art for this one but didn't get a chance to color it or come up with copy to fill all of the word balloons.

This one is from the word Fog-
My idea was that this undiscovered species of sloth - the giant landwalking 2 toed sloth - was used as a form of transportation by the local pygmies. the down side of riding the sloth is that he is very gassy and creates his own fog as he goes along. Since sloths are slow you're in for one smelly, foggy ride.
This is just the sketch. That's as far I got.

Well that's cleaned up some clutter from my mind and moved it over to the internet.

I love seeing your sketches and really love the sailor stuck in the boat with the parrot. In a way I'm glad you didn't get these coloured since I really love your linework. Great. Hope you survive the remodelling.
