Assuming you’re not a comic geek, I’ll tell you that’s the sound made when Spider-Man releases webs from his wrist web-shooters. My friend, Roxie, did a series of prints based on comic book action-sound exclamations. When she asked me for word ideas this one was the first which sprang to my mind. It’s been a favorite for Doodles. He always makes the hand gesture, which resembles what you might hold up at an Ozzy concert.
“Is this what a thwip looks like? Is this a thwip?”
Roxie celebrated her birthday yesterday (and will again today).
Remember to support the local artists you know. Soon, you’ll have a great chance with another new venture from our creative collective, Uptown Market.
