Illustration Friday - Reflection


This week for some reason I had a really hard time coming up with an idea. My first idea was of a child looking at himself in a puddle, but after looking at some of the other entries I realized that alot of other people had the same idea and I didn't want to be lame and copy them. So I scrapped it. I then remembered a photo that I had taken for the local newspaper I work for, and it had everything that I was looking to capture in this weeks illustration. This is a drawing of a mill viewed from underneath the bridge in downtown Kent, Ohio. This is kind of a departure for me I usually only use people as a subject, but I thought I would try a scenic view this week. Your comments are more than welcome. Enjoy.

This was a good choice! I love the composition of this piece; the view through the underside of the bridge is especially nice. There's something a bit sad and lonely about the mill above the river...with no people around..as if its old and no longer in operation. But..that's its charm, at least for me. What really beautifully done illustration:>

This is beautiful! I think that sometimes, when we do something that's not exactly our signature style, we end up doing something fresh and suprsingly wonderful!

This looks beautiful. I love the different shades of grey, and the strong reflection in the water.
