in poor taste

sardines
Another drawing inspired by a prompt from 642 Things to Draw.

This sketch triggered a memory for me of being little and going on a picnic--only to have it spoiled by rain. Rather than returning home, we ate in the car--with the exception of my mom, who was exiled because of her smelly choice of lunch--sardines.

What makes this situation even sadder is that I'm sure the rest of us were eating something much more appetizing, like potted meat or Vienna sausage.

This looks like so much fun to draw! It seems straight out of a cartoon... So cool!
