Capture


This weeks Illustration Friday. I still want to do more to it but I've got a stack of illustration work to do first. This one has stitching in it again, I'm getting into stitching lately. I love the "sketchy" look that stitching can give. Not that this piece really shows it, but the I like the imperfection that just comes naturally through my crooked sewing! I've been meaning to pull an image from my sketch book and just stitch the lines, I think it would be a good look.
Anyway, I've been a bit strapped of time lately, what with moving and illustration, and today hanging out in the emergency section of the hospital waiting for Jim's foot to be attended to after a wayward forklift from his work decided to go on a violent rampage.. OUCHY WOWY!!

"Now we'd like to show you what your child octopus will look like at age 40 if you do not make significant lifestyle changes"

Jules Knoblock said...

oh yes I feel so special and priveliged to be chosen as the pick of the week! I thought my stat counter had gone troppo and stuffed up because there were so many hits, then I worked out why!
I'll start Octo man on a strict diet of carrot shavings and low-fat turnip juice...
The problem is he like his fish with ice-cream.. (rolls eyes)
