illustration friday: electricity

so this week's topic for [illustration friday] is "electricity". i have a few very specific [subject wise] pieces in progress right now, so i took this as an opportunity to turn my brain down to low[er;)], and throw something down in my sketch pad.

after growing the piece into a few different compositions, i settled on this one, laid down some color with gouache, and colored pencil, then took it into photoshop, and... this is what i got!


i'm calling him "electric bill" [yeah- real original;)]. might do a bit more tinkering with the piece later, before throwing him up on my [etsy shop].

Oh I love how this turned out! I think you should mail one of your prints to the Electric Company & just skip paying your bill this month!
