What are the chances of...



















...death and taxes?
This week's submission for Illustration Friday's theme "100%".
Friends, my apologies for the morbid nature of this cartoon, but our old companion Monsieur Mort has been playing a large part in my thoughts lately.

mrs. B has sharp eyes! I would've missed it even though it's so cleverly done. The entire drawing is fantastic! I have to tell you though, think too much about Mr. Mort and he'll come a knockin' before your time.
Nice looking brew you've got there!

Great illo. I also must thank mrs. b. I was wondering what the 'thing' on his nose was. Very, very clever. I really like your style here.
