Eh. Sometimes an illustration is just forced. It’s been a busy week. I also need to stop drawing partial bedrooms for a while!
I wasn’t all that inspired by this weeks topic so this is more of a theme than a depiction. Rabbits’ feet. shoes, socks… Ok I got a little fixated on rabbits altogether last week because of the “drunk bunny” at Charlotte’s friend’s wedding.
Edit 5.23.06: Bunnies and Socks: A disquisition upon rabbit-ness. Ears or feet?
By Keith Ward
Which provides the essence of a bunny? Long ears help us hear, and cool us
off in the summer. Surely they are most important, and these human socks
surely must have been intended to protect our ears.
Feet: Wrongo! Our big feet provide quick getaways and keep us from
sinking in the snow. Because humans put socks on THEIR feet, which are
far less important or grand than OUR feet, surely ours deserve socks
Plus, look at how silly you look with that sock on you ear!
This is my latest entry to Illustration Friday:
Im actually rather pleased with this one… The topic was “Tattoo”. Was racking my brain and came up with 3 lousy iterations of pin-up girls. Late last night Bill says “I just keep picturing a little kid drawing on herself with markers”. So this pretty much came right out.
This one here on the bottom is the finished version. I had some good advice from Jason that helped me transform the rough looking one on the top into something a little less busy. Doing this image was a great learning experience.
“The Ant and the Grasshopper”
This wasn’t what I had intended to do, it was what I had time to do. I’m still working on my original idea. I’ll post that later.
Photoshop, Flash, and an excuse to try out ArtRage (Thanks Bart!)
Edit: 4.19.06: I finally posted the other idea I had for “Tea.”
Since once I sat upon a promontory,
And heard a mermaid on a dolphin’s back
Uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath,
That the rude sea grew civil at her song,
And certain stars shot madly from their spheres
To hear the sea-maid’s music.
– Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare
