Illustration Friday: Contagious

We just had our first confermed death last week here in Utah. (from the swine flu) A 20 something year old male in good health. Crazy times we live in...several schools have also closed here for a week or two. These days your only school supplies should be a mask and hand sanitizer! Anyway, this is what I was thinking when I sketched up this little doodle.

I didn't have time to do much for this topic, but I got an hour this afternoon so I sketched out something. This is a real fast one, and I know it shows, because of that, I also made a conceptual piece as well. So ya get two for the "price" of one!

Illustration Friday: Parade

I've been trying to put a little more effort into my stuff that I show...even on my blog....but this week I reverted back to my old ways...simple and quick.

I marched in a few parades when I was a freshman in high school, I remember one time when my shoe didn't fit was horrible. So I guess that's where this image originated...I thought the weird gesture would be fun to try...but I got board with it and just pumped it out so I could have something to post for IF... and keep my little streak going. enjoy.

Illustration Friday: Hierarchy

When I saw this weeks topic, I thought it would be a lot of fun to draw a bunch of different "high school-type" characters. My plan was to do about 10, but I soon realized it would take too long to paint all those. So I cut it down to something manageable... I posted the results

there is nothing like the hierarchy in which we place ourselves and others. It starts in grade school and never really ends. So many different factors...some are heredity, others are monetary, but the list is almost endless. Color of skin, color of hair, how ya talk, where you live, what cloths you wear, how much money your dad makes, who your friends are, then there is always the way you look, how smart you are, how often you choose to bath, and lets not forget how naturally coordinated you are...and there is much much more.

I guess we all need to remember that all men are created equal...not the same, just equal!
