Illustration Friday - Play 2


I have decided to do a more upbeat interpretation on "Play". My friend Tim and I were going to do a children's book called "Eric and the Woozle", featuring Eric and his dog. We never got around to it, but I had a really clear picture of what the first page would look like. So I decided to draw it. This is the first time I've used computer techniques extensively with a drawing.

It reminds me of the sort of games I used to play with my sister. We were often explorers and I would draw a map of the lands we had to explore. Household objects became extraordinary things and other rooms became other countries inhabited by different beings.

I really like the fun of this illo. The way in which the light hits the page brings out the feel of the flash light.

Thank you for sharing.
