Tire Swing

I feel like I'm really starting to get a handle on that elusive beast called "style." It's funny to me that when I stop trying to find my style it jumps out from behind a corner and yells, "Boo!"



I had a ton of fun with this one.

just fantastic!

My illustration-illiterate first reaction, I have to say, is that it reminds me of the style in Curious George: vivid, with good contrast in the outlines.

Love it.

I love this. Right away I want to know the story behind it. What's in the tree that has them both worried? The colors are great and the grass sprinkler fountain, along with everything else.

I really like the contrast in color. I agree with Alan, it does have a Curious George feeling.
And I just love you...

I love the comments...and knowing the storing behind it :) I love what the illustration is accomplishing in portraying reality and imagination.

I notice the dad is wearing Converse. lol

Will Strong said...

What else would he wear?

I don't think I really know how to draw any other shoes. Maybe I should do some research on footwear.
