lllustration Friday- Flying

I haven't participated in Illustration Friday in ages but this week's topic-"Flying" really inspired me. A mixture of the topic and my desire to do something Halloween-ish made this illo. So happy since I did it for fun-without thinking how it can be used as a portfolio piece or some other purpose. I think us illustrators fall into that trap sometimes and become stuck. I know I do.

Although I think it looks sort of like a greeting card. (Hey Hallmark! Hey American Greetings, are you out there?!) I would love to do a whole line of wacky cards like this. :-)

I would love it if you had a line of Hallmark cards. I'd have a hard time not buying too many of them though.

This is SO funny!! Really clever. The coffin cracks me up!

It did snow this weekend but we were at our place up north near Traverse City. If you want a nice weekend getaway, it's a great place to visit. About 3 hour drive north, big/small town on the bay, wine tasting, shopping, great places to eat or just drive around and look at the colors.
