Illustration Friday - Open

Illustration Friday's topic this week was 'open'. I'm not entering this little doodle, and took their topic to mean it was open to interpretation.


I used this week's IF to mess around with my new calligraphy nibs, patterns, lines and just let my mind wander.

Some parts of this drawing I like, such as fish scales, little ovals and the cobalt purple color. However, I'm the type to see animals and shapes in anything. I see a balloon creature, amoeba, and organ tissue and innards in this. Don't tell Freud. Can you tell I was also watching a documentary on the Big Bang Theory?

Here's hoping you all have a great weekend. I am looking forward to a roadtrip to Maine, a beautiful wedding, an Egg McMuffin from McDonalds (I only go there when it's a road trip), a rare bookstore, and experiencing fall, finally!

I'm also going to bring 5 books to read, my sketchpad, and 2 knitting projects. Did I mention I'll be back on Sunday? (wink)

Beautiful! Enjoy your trip :)

Does your road trip to ME include a detour to Boston?! Let me know if it does!

I think I heard an add on the radio that egg mcmuffin sandwiches are on an incredible sale: 2 for $3!! (What are they normally, like $1.99??)

Very cool illustration. I love how bold the lines and colors are.
Have a great trip, and eat an egg mcmuffin for me!

Oh, And I think your illustration is great.

Wow, I really thought that was fancy appliqué! Nice!

Damn it, now I want a muffin.
