C is for Carp

Day 3 of the A-Z Challenge.. click for more info.

After the previous couple of days I wanted to do something not human. I was going to do a car, but decided that I really wasn't that interested in doing all those straight lines and perfect circles (or ovals, whatever).

So, instead I did a fish... a carp to be exact. Except I don't really know what they look like. I checked out Google - turns out they look just like regular fish. So, whatever. Here's a fish... I mean, here's a carp.

I live in muddy water.

I love seeing your daily drawings.Since I would only be able to draw a stick fish (lol), I am always impressed.

Now there's a face to wake up to. I love that fish. :)

I like your carp!
One time a group of us were playing a computer game at work (yes, playing games on company time!) and when one of my co-workers was shot, instead of typing Crap! Crap! Crap! he typed Carp! Carp! Carp! We've never let him live it down...

You should look up one of those Asian carps. They're damned ugly and destroying the Great Lakes ecology.

oh, I love your drawings. I so can't even make decent stick figures. Nice to "meet" you.

I'm sensitive too, and that's one lovely carp, for a mud-dweller. ;)

Nice to meet you, and see you around the challenge!

I love that fish. The caption underneath made me laugh.

And I'm like Brinda. I could only draw a stick fish.

They sound much cooler when we call them Koi.

That just looks like potential sushi.

I love the carp's expression.

Love it. Especially the caption. Maybe for F day my daughter will let me post her nightmare fish picture (inspired by a nightmare) - it's kind of awesome.

Cherie Reich said...

Love the carp's attitude. :)

Andrew Leon said...

But can it cut down a tree?

Gail said...

Great job...I believe the goldfish and Koi may be related to the carp. I would have to look it up but not going to. I shall leave that to others.

There were carp in Lake Erie and the Niagara River once upon a time. It was like a cuss word to my Grandpa. I like your carp.

Medeia Sharif said...

Great drawing and I like the fish's expression.

Susan Kane said...

Excellent rendering of a carp. Carps are rugged fish, and awfully bony.

Sarah Pearson said...

I like him, he doesn't look like he would eat me.

Ciara said...

My son will love this. Of course, I thought of Nemo. Okay, I promise not to think of kids shows on the next one.
