"Stripes" is the theme for Illustration Friday today as I continue in my endeavor to submit to their site EVERY Friday of 2011! So far, so good and today I've got an illustration from my Scraps & Motives (S&M) Exhibit at Cafe Coco in Nashville back in the summer of 2008. This drawing is actually a very small work (about 5 inches tall) and is a crowd favorite. The look on his face was my own response and outlet for being overrun with house flies at the time I drew the piece. I hate flies, they make me crazy and I'm sure it's a sight to see a grown man jumping up and down in victory every time one feels the wrath of my swatter. I'm not sure why, but folks seem to like my characters the more they look like they should be wearing a helmet. Why do you think my viewers are drawn to the deranged?
