Great Canadian Inventions



Just a few great Canadian inventions in this illo - instant mashed potatoes (a guilty pleasure of mine!), five-pin bowling, the zipper, electric range, the Wonderbra (she's wearing one, I drew it, really)...what you can't see is her pacemaker, the insulin she takes, the paint roller off to the side - that wallpaper has got to go!

Canadians love their inventors.

And she's already drunk on Caesars. I covet the skirt, by the way.

This is just a pleasure to look at. Your style is wonderful, I love her dress with the bowling pins design and her hair is amazing, the zipper floor-great touch.
Canadians are great inventors, the insulin is a godsend, two close relatives of mine have needed insulin in their adult lives.

Beautiful, creative piece!
