Sticky – Illustration Friday

Click for a bigger and better image!

Here it is...Wednesday already, and I have finally found time to complete my Illustration Friday. I blame it on my husband being home...I never seem to be in the same work mode when he is around. Mind you...I don't mind one bit! In fact, now that he is back to work today...I already miss him, and wish he were here!

Back on topic.

This week I was once again stumped with trying to come up with something so unique I would blow everybody's socks off...so, I stuck with the ever-so-popular sticky subject...bubblegum! OH...and, I threw in a sticky bandaid too! I love drawing children's illustrations, and do enjoy brighter and happier subjects. So, I thought of a little boy blowing a bubble for the first time! This was my inspiration for this week's Illustration Friday.

Funny, I thought I was the only one who felt that way about my other half being off from work! Now I won't feel so guilty for feeling like that!
Fantastic illustration!!! Made me smile because it reminded me about a part of my Mime show I use to do years ago...a skit called "The Bubble!"

That bubble is going to be sticky when it bursts! I love how you have created the mouth so it looks like he's blowing the bubble, and I love the joy and his pose.

Can't you just see what happens next? Sticky face, sticky hair, sticky t-shirt, sticky fingers.

This is so sweet, the colours are perfect too!

Uh oh...someone's gonna have a sticky mess very soon! I like how the little boy looks like he's being lifeted off the ground by the bubble, and I like the wonderful transparency. Good one:>

He looks like he is balancing the heavy balloon out! So cute! I was just thinking that - and I suppose it is the white outline - all your recent characters would make great stickers. You could put them in unexpected places and spread happy vibes!
