Illustration Friday – Wind



It's hard to believe that it has been two weeks since I found time to post, but time has a way of blowing right past you. I got busy with some new projects at work and had a freelance project to keep me busy and both had me winded. When I saw the latest topic for Illustration Friday, I couldn't figure out if I would attempt wind, as in wind the watch or the wind blows. As I contemplated that, the museum kept me busy as well as the weeds in the yard. I have gotten very friendly with tillers and jack hammers recently as I work to, FINALLY, get my yard in shape.

With ALL that going on, I really didn't find any spare time to get the pencils out. HOWEVER, the big freelance project that I had actually was perfect for the topic.

I had to do a series of three illustrations for an Office max training presentation. I can't go into the topic any further but I can show you the illustrations.

They were challenging.

They were fun.

They are my addition to Illustration Friday.

I think this sailors compass let him down. What great action filled artwork, the sequence of events depicted in each piece gives a dramatic feel to this work, yet all the fun remains-at least for the viewer. To look from the top first means his trustee compass saved the day, either way, very cool pieces and entertaining!

Cool cartoon-style work. I never would have thought about "winding" up a clock.
