Illustration Friday - Float

"Floatin on the Blues"

Every week it seems that I am getting my submission posted later and later. Where does the time go? It feels like I'm getting this done early enough, but once I post this it will only be valid for like 3 days. I feel like I'm being picked next to last for kickball or something. But instead of the jocks picking me last it's my busy crazy life. This scares me when I think about it because I would like to start doing some more freelance in the near future, but when will I have the time? Sorry for the rant, but ideally I would love to have my illustration posted Sunday night or Monday morning.

Okay enough complaining. Here is my submission for Illustration Friday with the topic of Float. It's kind of off topic a little, but I was thinking isn't it great how the blues can make you feel like your floating a few feet off the ground. So here it is "Floating on the Blues".

Oh...this was worth waiting for! Hmmm..isn't this Mr. Johnson who sold his soul to the devil? If so, it sure looks like he outsmarted him after all :> Great colors and details...like the wings and the dobro and the sharp shadows you created. Really nice!

I love the blues. It's not off topic. And it is a super illustration.

This is excellent. It is very original and not at all late! Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Cheers!

I like that his socks are showing. For some reason, that makes him look particularly weightless. Also, his tiny wings are cute. xo L.
