Illustration Friday: Jungle


The theme this week on Illustration Friday is Jungle which is quite a strange happening as I just this week finished a piece called "It's A Jungle Out There". This isn't your typical jungle I know, but I am not your typical girl. This sweet and innocent black and white illustartion of a girl on rollerskates is emerging from a black and white world into one of virbrant color. Think Pleasantville, only 2D. Her number is up, and she is on her way!

I was going through IF's entries this week and clicked on your link. I love your collaged take on "jungle". I also perused your site. I really enjoy your work.

Ooooo, there are so many way to interpret it! I myself like the contemporary sensibility of the painting combined with 50s wacky (no one can have a neck that long, right?) imagery. Very nice…
