Coming up with an illustration for captious was fairly easy. I knew I wanted to do someone inspecting the baseboards for dust (because really, who show me the person who has the time and motivation to dust their baseboards and I bet they need a serious vacation and/or a head transplant). It seemed only fitting that someone like Mr. Carson from Downton Abbey would be a good person to inspect dust on the baseboards. Although if I were to be captious about it, it might technically be one of Mrs. Hughes' duties and not Carson's. Also, if I were to be really captious about my illustration, Mr. Carson doesn't have sideburns. I've made him look like a butler from the 1970s. Oh well, I'd like to see THAT scandal hit Downton Abbey!
"Facial hair on a butler? Well I never!"
Visual Vocabulary is a project I created for myself in which I attempt to sear new words into my memory by illustrating them. You can see all of them here.
