Food Puns are Fun

Another project for one of my classes. I'm really enjoying myself now that I don't have instructors telling me that I won't succeed without item synthesis, or the ability to be conceptual rather than narrative, or that characters will not get me business. It also makes me feel less like crap, so work I like happens more.

Note, the pun is "fish and chips"

Royal Winter Fair

What did I learn? Farm animals are smelly, but not so smelly that thousands of people wouldn't want to be in a room with them to take photos and win prizes.

Also, as cute as they are, it's not that much of a moral dilemma to go get a burger after seeing how sad a cow looks.

I wouldn't mind going back if I have the chance next year. Man that place was crammed full of sheep.

A silly post.

Please note, though no one reads this but Kim, that I am not an American.

Also, I am not a republican, but I think McCain is a nice enough guy. Palin, however, seemed extremely crazy. I'm glad she's not the VP, and I thought I would miss her crazy tv appearances (but she's still making them.)

Anyway. Here.

Also, the text balloon says "You betcha" at least, in theory.

Red Cross

Another image I'm pretty happy with. This time it's a bit more uplifting than my writhing pile of people. We were doing a project about social awareness, and I chose the Red Cross as my starting point.
I don't know why, but I really like the linework in it. Next, I moved on to my new coloring style. Flats and textures.
I wanted to make the crosses stand out more, though, so I tinkered around with the file and ended up with something a bit more arty.
I think I'll make one more version where the desaturated area gradiates up to color toward the blue sky, but keep all the red's bright again.
