We go together like...

I still remember the first time I ever heard of the musical Grease.  

I was sitting on the grass in first grade day camp and one of my friends said something about a "Grease song."  Being a snotty little know-it-all, I corrected her, saying that the correct phrasing would be "Greek song" because Greek is the adjective for Greece.  Being an equally snotty little know-it-all, she shot right back, "No, it's GREASE.  Like how you GREASE a PAN."  Boy, was I peeved.

These fun little drawings are inspired by that fateful July afternoon.  I tried to avoid the usual peanut-butter-and-jelly and macaroni-and-cheese comparisons and go for some quirkier pairings.  The tattoos and piercings one (in blue below) was extra fun to work on -- I finally learned how to draw a proper bicep!  Movin' on up in the world.

For more pairings, plus prints of everything you see here, please visit my Etsy shop!
