"STRONG" *Illustration Friday *

So here is my take on "strong". Man I wish I didn't have a regular job so I could spend more time on these. I like the idea of having ridiculous circus acts. I may go deeper into creating more and more ridiculous ones just because. I am doing a watercolor version of this piece at home...I may post that when I am done. I'm just so slow at using watercolor. Oh well...between playing BEATLES™ ROCK BAND™ and watching Beverly Hills Chihuahua I was able to come up with this!

I wish I was lying about watching that movie!

"MAGNIFY" *Illustration Friday *

So here is my new one. I got the idea right away for some reason. I have had my share of pouring salt on snails. I don't remember enjoying it, well maybe a little, I mean come on, you hold the POWER OF LIFE in your sweet little, chubby, booger coated fingers. Who would have thought something so enjoyable on eggs could be so so deadly! And really who was the first kid to do this...and how many other things did he/she pour salt on before hitting the JACKPOT!!!

As for the coloring i have tried to stay away from digital coloring. I find that having SO many options actually makes it more difficult. You don't have to think as much, and for me I need all the thinking time I can get! But for the sake of time I colored this one digitally...hopefully back to traditional next week!
