illustration friday (hurry)
















"Hurry," in Curling terminology, is a command shouted by the skip to tell the sweepers to sweep harder and faster-- in other words, it's used much the same way it's used in ordinary conversation. But Curling is cooler than ordinary conversation. That's my opinion, but you agree, don't you? Of course, you do.

Just.in.Case.You've.Never.Heard.of.Curling (perish the thought!) check out the Wiki link on Curling.

  1. How funny! I loved watching curling for the first time. Just delightful to see this taken so seriously. *ahem* puts a lot of stuff in perspective :)

    1. カーリングというスポーツ知らない?氷の上のボーリングみたいな感じ。

      カーリングの基本用語にhurryという言葉があるんだけど、氷をほうきのような物で磨く係の選手に対する呼びかけです。普通の英語会話で使うhurry(急げ)の意味とあまり変わらないので、どうでもいいんだけど…

      カナダで大人気のスポーツだけど、北海道からもオリンピック級の良い女性選手が出てるんだね、これが。

  3. Sounds like a lot of work, or maybe that's just because I've been putting off sweeping the floor?

  4. Aha! Great concept and illustration. I lived in Utah during the year the winter Olympics were there, and curling got a lot of good local press (I think they were trying to get more spectators...)

  8. Debbie, thank you for your great card and envelope. The paper is a little bit different this time, is is a new technique? I also like the name card very much, I almost missed it. Very cool!
