Here is my latest Minted entry, done just under the wire. I’m really happy with this illustration as I think it showcases just about everything I enjoy doing within an illustration. I hope you will go and vote for it here: http://www.minted.com/design-rating/65515 and don’t forget to go and vote for others as well while you’re there!
As a bit of back story, the city I live in acquired several statues last year for our downtown. One in particular received a lot of attention for better or worse. It was the statue of a red pig, a sow actually, affectionately dubbed Willie the Red Pig. A few days ago, that statue was stolen in broad daylight and is valued at $6000 so her return could result in a felony offense. The day before this happened I was tasked with creating a cartoon of “Willie” for an events poster that will be used to highlight events to take place from summer through the Christmas season. I wasn’t sure if I should continue to draw her, but my love of drawing animals prevailed and I just went for it. If they choose to use her or not, I’ve done what I set out to do and I’m loving her already! We miss you Willie, please come home soon. 😦
From my daughters story, here is Penny the Pickle in full color. On a side note, I lost my job yesterday, one in which I left a perfectly fine job for but after only 3 weeks, 3 days per week they told me yesterday that it “wasn’t working out.” I’m a little dumbfounded but my solution at least for a time is to see if I can’t make a go of this illustration thing. Any feedback for my work would be much appreciated. Thanks for looking. 🙂
