Illustration Friday: Bounce

Finally, Phoebe went to the hairdresser to get her hair done. A bit of a snip, some swooshy styling and lots of hairspray later and wholah! It was done. It looked fab, in fact, she looked hot (stop looking at yourself in the mirror Phoebe...). Her hair had so much extra bouffe and bounce! It was so bouncy, she could now actually sit on it without even nearing the ground... cool!

Bounce - there is something oddly Egyptian about this illo... I think its the hand above her head. Lots of fun as per usual - she started out sitting on a chair until I drew the big curl and thought she looked much better sitting on a curl?!

  5. Karen, you've nailed the three C's: creativity, composition and color. It's so delightful! The texture in the background is very cool and you got me laughing at her tiny butt. Bravo!
