Supermarket

This is my submission to Revista Colectiva, The Supermarket issue.
(Thanks, Juancho for the invitation!)

I'm happy with the way this turned out...doing these personal pieces frees me up. When I know I am not doing something specificly for the children's market, which have many restrictions in a way (especially in textbook publishing and in the US.), I can play a little more. Or maybe its just all in my head. My sketchbooks use to be filled with alot more wacky-ness. Now its just all stuff for work.

Anyways, thank you for everyone's comments regarding my last post on STYLE. I agree with Zime that concept and the voice of the illustrator is part of the style and is what I am usually drawn to. And Bravo to those of you who can work in many styles! Personally, I am ok with working in one style BUT it is constantly changing and evolving...which means experimenting and working out of your comfort zone.

Alrighty, let me get off my soap box for now. Until next time, folks.

awww, that is so cute! i love the little birdie with the shell for a hat and still sitting in a nest. :) Also, am glad to see momma chicken did not pull the lever to buy a turkey leg - that would be disturbing! haha

I like it! You seem to have a thing for automats... have you been to the real one in the village? I wish meat and fish could come out with the pull of a lever, how fun!

Thanks, everyone!

Gina- YES! You are talking about BAAM on St Marks Place, right? That area is my regular hang out place. That automat is so cool!

This is really terrific.
It's fun to see you "playing" although I love everything that you do.
You have such a great sense of design.

Hahaha I love it :D the fish dead in the back is a bit sad for me *cries* but love it love the cart and the mum passing around :D Beautiful hon, as usual :D

Oh yes, I know what you mean. Sometimes, I wish I could have the same style every week. But, that's rarely happens in the world of an art director. I have to think on my feet every day to fit the target audience. Lucky you to have found something that everyone knows you by.

HI Jannie...just popping by to say hello ...I thought for sure you would have a chicken in the garden for IF...

Cheers,

This is so great and I love the green fish with the XX eyes. So many things to look at and the momma chicken is a hoot! Or is that a cheep? :)

This is fabulous! Love the little leftover shell on the baby birds head... really nice touch. You always have so many fun little details to check out in your work. I can come back and find new nuances every time, (new nuances, did I just write that?)
