Illustration Friday - Parade



As for how I came up with this idea, your guess is as good as mine. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Thought Process: "Parade?" I'll draw a fat guy with a chain of rollerbladers in tow!

Seriously, that's it. And I'm not ashamed at all. Well maybe a little. The drawing took about two hours and the photoshop work afterwards about another hour.

I went back to using my brush pen for this entry. I'm still a fan of it, of course. Micron pens for the smaller details. The interesting composition (if you don't think it sucks, of course) is a result of the confines of the moleskine in which it is drawn, haha.

My moleskine is going to be full of strange + interesting little things, isn't it?
