The Ululating Pickle From Upstairs

in art •  24 days ago


here is nother entry in my deep-pickle-series.
it happens like this :
i listen to some podcast on youtube with headphones and
i draw a pickle. then i draw things around it - or sometimes i first draw something that is not a pickle - and then i go : hey this needs a pickle and zang! another deep pickle image.

i looked up ululation on wikipedia : "...from Latin ululo, is a long, wavering, high-pitched vocal sound resembling a howl with a trilling quality. It is produced by emitting a high pitched loud voice accompanied with a rapid back and forth movement of the tongue and the uvula..."

it´s such a nice word ! first i wanted to call it "the howling pickle" but boy i´m glad i found out about ululation. way more adequate.

that's it for now - back to the drawing table! :D

have a splendid day,eat a pickle
and make it worth it!

Hilarious - yes, if my pickles made that kind of noise, I'd eat them all and be done with them! Love this wicked sense of humor - just the word "ululating" is as funny as can be. Comedy routines should include this word to get a sure laugh from the audience!


hehe thank you so much thermoplastic!!!

What a strange cartoon! I also hate neighbours like that. I had no idea they were pickles. That explains a lot. 😅😅😅

This surely pickles my imagination.

Awesome style and nice to hear you explain about your inspiration.

It’s hard to find pickles here in Portugal but I love to eat them - as an addition - to a meal of home cooked nasi, whenever I’m at my parents’ place in The Netherlands
