Here’s a commissioned piece I finished recently for an independent exhibit and environmental planner, Tim Burnham. The artwork is part of a series of promotional postcards featuring illustrated versions of sayings that apply to his business. In this case it’s about being patient and accepting the fact that you can’t force something to happen that’s pretty much impossible.
Haven’t heard from me in a while, eh kiddos? Been a little busy round these parts for the past few weeks, but I finally made some time to do some personal work. Well, sorta personal. An Illustration Friday assignment, which i guess is half-way personal. Been doing a lot of blending lately and somehow I stumbled upon the theme of amputation…so a pirate with a blender for a hand was the natural choice for the “equipment” theme.
I promise there will be more complete sentences. In the future.
I love how the topics at Illustration Friday have been very open to interpretation lately. i wasn’t sure if I wanted to go with technical visual perspective, or try illustrating the notion of people having different points of of view. The end result is definitely more literal than I had hoped to go. However, I like that as a viewer, you might try to conceive of this situation from the farther character’s point of view.
P.S. Here’s a detail of the little guy.
