Illustration Friday: Stomach

I really um’d and ah’d about whether to pursue this week’s illustration topic. But while I was doing so I just kept on drawing, and eventually I started to enjoy the new-for-me psemi-psychedelic bedroom-poster cut-out lunacy that emerged (man). Remember that we children of the 70s grew up with this kind of madness as our wallpaper. The only troubling aspect, and one that’s had me in equal parts laughing and pulling down the blind, has been the ‘oh, stomachs? I thought they were…’ – ness of it, but believe me, I tried without the belly-buttons, and it just doesn’t work. It’s a navel trade-off (man). So we’ll see how we go, but I rather like the poster-y crowded simplicity of it, and it’s nice to make the weekly challenge into a very obvious learning experience. The ‘well, of course’ butterflies were an afterthought, but I’m glad I made afterthought possible, after all. Oh, and the rounded edges were a late indulgence in Pic Monkey – they kind of seemed to suit.

I come from a long line of cartoons and beer. I was once peed on by a tiger. Hoping the resultant super-powers are yet to come, cos if these are they, then, grrrr....

  1. What is particularly discombobulating (in a good way) about this retro ’70s piece is that today is, well…. Thursday. Oh, and the stomach thing (man).

    • Oh I know, it’s a nuisance. It’s called ‘Friday’ cos that’s when the week’s new topic is announced, so obviously you need to load up the current one by Thursday neet. It doesn’t sit well.
