Greeting my illustrator comrades. Those of you participating in Illustration Friday this week will already know that the word we have been challenged with is "Hurry!" I hope my offering meets with your approval;
As with my entry last week, I have again decided to use the opportunity to delve further into the unique world of childrens book illustration. Despite dedicating a mere two nights to the process of coming up with the idea, planning it and then drawing the ruddy thing, I think I've done okay.
The subject matter is as simple as can be: I have drawn a sort of caricature of myself rushing to enter Illustration Friday (accompanied by two characters I came up with for last week's submission - anyone recognise Fred the Cat?). More often than not I wait until the last possible moment in the week to create my IF picture and almost always have to hurry to make sure I can submit it in time. Not this week - it's only Tuesday! High five...
Good luck to the rest of you - and...don't leave it too late or this might be you!
