Illustration Friday

focusedWell, drawergeeks has gone on indefinite hiatus… So, I decided now would be a perfect opportunity to try Illustration Friday. If you’re not familiar, it’s another site that picks a random topic for illustration, but in this case it’s totally open to the public to submit, so you can literally see dozens of interpretations of the same theme.

This week was ‘focused’. I just barely made the deadline since they pick a new topic every Friday, but I figured I should go ahead and submit and hopefully get myself motivated to do more.

You can browse their whole archive, including this topic here.

Don’t ask me why this is what came to mind when I read the theme. Guys are pigs and it seemed funny to me to emphasize one of the most obvious failings associated with being a pig. Originally I had the cross-hairs red, which struck me as looking too much like a gun sight. So, I went with green and a few concentric circles. It seems less gun-like, but it’s not entirely what I had envisioned.

Still, I think the point is fairly obvious, so I’ll call it something of a success. I’m also pretty happy with the ink work and coloring, so perhaps this is something to build on for future submissions.
