Ostrich design

No splash faucet, conceived specially for houses with many children or without a dish washer. Its design, inspired on the ostrich way of problem solving, tries to avoid the boring job of drying drops over the tiles. I can tell it's 100% efficient on this issue.
This is I.K.E.A. (Idle Klutzy Earthy Artifacts) 7th issue.
Previous issues: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, and #6.
(To be continued).

Isn't it nice to be home again?

This is my contribution to Suzanne's japanese Moleskine for the Moly_X_12.
It was the last entry, and after my drawing the moly started its homeward flight, after having traveled around the world for almost 2 years. Maybe because of this or who knows which other reasons I was in a some kind of and-so-it-goes mood when I draw it...
