I remember running around the house, jumping off furniture. I clutched two corners of a blanket (okay, maybe it was a towel) around my neck and pretended a cape billowed dramaticaly behind me. The soundtrack, as I recall, was Gypsys, Tramps and Theives by Cher... or maybe it was The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia byVicki Lawrence. Well, is there a difference?!
That's what sprung to mind when I saw the word for Illustration Friday was "blanket."
Once again I challenged myself to create an illustration relatively quickly (5 hours from concept to final). I chose to work in line because my portfolio is lacking black and white samples - that's crazy because I grew up with a brush (and ink) in hand.
This illustration was actually created with goache, not ink. Goache is opaque but doesn't gum up a brush like ink. The color is added in Photoshop.
