Illustration Friday- Propagate


Office Shannagans

I have to be honest and say that I had my share of choice words when I saw this week’s challenge… Propagate. After looking it up because I kept mistaking its definition as PROCREATE (- and how in the world can I make a G- rated illustration about that?!) I was off and rolling with ideas with pen in hand and create drive waiting to be unleashed.  Or so I had hoped.

For the first time since I stumbled across Illustration Friday I had nothing. Well, this is somewhat not true… I had ideas but when I logged on to Illustration Friday and yes, they had already been done. (SIGH) So I sat down with my angel of a husband and asked him to rack his brain… together we came up with this image. 🙂

I am semi satisfied with this image… yet did not mean to have the character look like a young David Letterman or Jack Nicholson. (LOL 🙂 )In fact, this is the very reason why I still look at this image and sigh aloud. Needing to honor my families need for quality time I am refraining every need to go back and start again. I love the creative tug-of-war!

Next Weeks Goal:

  • Study Digital Tools in-depth and try something new in next illustration
  • Advertisement postcards due March 6th, 2010

    Ha! GOod one! . . . actually, I think “propagate” and “procreate” could mean the same thing . . . and I had lots of non-G-rated images come to mind too! Fun trying to come up something to match the challenge!

  2. Fantastic – what great details and just a great concept!
