This week’s theme: Survival.
This week’s illustration friday topic was ‘RED’ and as soon as I saw it, this piece came to mind. I’ve been trying to find a place to use it for 3 damn years. I sketched it out after a dream I had in 2011 and really liked it, but couldn’t work out what I would ever use it for. So when I saw the theme for this week I was like: ‘YES! finally!’
I won’t go into the details of the dream, because let’s face it, hearing about other peoples dreams is mostly BOOOORING, but I will say: Just imagine slightly creepy, slowed-down, circus music when you look at it.
This weeks topic at Illustration Friday is Onomatopoeia, and since that is a word that I have loved saying since I first heard it when I was little, I decided to try and find the time whilst taking care of the baby viking to upload a submission for the theme.
I was lucky again in that I already had a design that popped to mind when I saw the theme. “Giggly Ghost” is my go to. Not just because of the onomatopoeia of the word ‘giggle’, but also because of the classic ghostly refrain of “Boo!”.
I reworked the image slightly to suit the theme, but the original design and indeed range of products can be found here.
I love getting to use this image for Illustration Friday, mainly because it still makes me giggle.
We have a little Persian rug in our hallway, and our mad grey and white cat, Kalimah, just loves being pulled around the room on it. I like to imagine that this is how she sees herself when we play this game.
