Flavor - Illustration Friday




A popular New Year's resolution is to lose weight. However, many people forget that resolution (including myself), or simply forgo their commitment to overindulge in a special flavorful treat they just cannot resist. My very first illustration for Illustration Friday depicts one of those overindulgences, and the subsequent results if you continue with that special treat instead of getting back on that resolution.

I'm thinkin' a rootbeer float, vanilla ice cream and all. That's why I don't make resolutions anymore 'cause they're destined to be broken. Anyway, nice pic!
