Illustration Friday: Worn(-out)


IF-Worn-1

This evolved out of a sketch I drew while I was waiting to pick up my daughter from a class. My favorite books from childhood were almost always illustrated with spot color. It is amazing to see how much someone like Arnold Lobel could squeeze out of two ink plates for his Frog and Toad series. I am happy to see a bit of nostalgia in new releases from publishers, but I fear it may just be a passing trend!

  1. Aww! She looks totally harried and exhausted. I love that little one pulling her skirt! Such a cute and unruly crowd of youngins. Also, Frog and Toad! Such a favorite!

  2. Wonderful illustration! I love spot color too and often color my own illustrations that way. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comment! 🙂

    I LOVE your Illustration! It is adorable, but Im particularly inclined to be bias when it comes to Chucks. ;0) Great Job! Lovely Characters! Neat Concept!
    Cheers.
