Classy Cozzie



We don't call it a swimsuit where I come from. It's a cozzie.
We also wear thongs on our feet and no amount of sniggering from Americans is going to make us call them anything else. Nyeh.

Started off in Painter 9 until I got pissed off with the program(as usual). Finished in Photoshop, which knows how to behave.

It's a cozzie and thongs in South Africa, too. Still repeats in the back of my mind when I say 'bathing suit' or 'flip flops.'

CONGRATS on the Pixar gig! I'm sad to see Thorn stop, but happy that Pixar recognized your talent. Their storytelling never ceases to amaze me.

Shen: Thank you for the congrats, but I should clarify that it is not Pixar I'm working for.

Disney owns Pixar, Disney grants a license to Boom to produce Pixar and Muppet comics. So I'm actually working for Boom with Disney/Pixar being our client in these projects.

Dude! You have a great style! I was wondering if you ever have done a Darth Vader? I am creating a tribute book to George Lucas called "100 Ways to the Darkside" where I am having 100 hand picked artist create Darth Vader. I would love one for the book in your style. Please let me know if your interested!

Thanks a million

Congrats on the Boom gig! I'm sick at heart to see Miss Rosie go on hiatus, as, she and I have so much in common, lol, but, truly happy for your good fortune :)

Also...I'm from the south, we don't have suits for 'bathing' we have them for 'swimming' lol, so, it's swimsuit and thongs, bah golleh.

You know, when I was growing up they were always called thongs. I don't know when they were changed to flip flops.

Never heard cozzie. That's cute sounding though.

Heidi 'n' Jeff said...

I think we say swimmy suit or swimming suit. It depends on the age of person you are talking to I suppose.

I grew up in Southern Wasington, right near the Oregon boarder. I don't know if it's regional.

Aussies in cozzies... (triggers the Banana in Pajamas song...)

So what do they call an American thong? I prefer the colloquial "butt floss".
