sweater – illustration friday

I give you ‘the barnyard sweater gang’.

So, since I’ve been stuck on funny looking chicks, I figured why not also dress them in poorly fitting sweaters and throw in some of the tall ones I’ve been sketching.

It’s interesting that just by the direction they’re pointing (two going one direction and one the other) there’s some tension or emotion implied. I added just a hint of eye direction to the one on the left that seems to enhance this idea.

These chickens probably need to be translated to t-shirt designs in cafe express…

      it’s a simple style, I guess, but one that seems to have a great deal more depth than I originally gave it credit for.

      thank you! I’m thinking I should have my daughter write me a story to go along with this, then illustrate the whole thing.
