Last week's Illustration Friday – Impossibility (+ bonus Robot!)

[21 Apr 2009 | By | 18 Comment(s) | 3,056 views ]

So I forced myself to get out the watercolors today… I missed IF last week, and so you get *TWO*! pictures for today. This first one is what popped into my head based on this week’s theme of “Impossibility”. Well, not much of a stretch, as much of my odd world fits in that category.

“At Least Highly Improbable” –

I sketched this next on, after doing the original sketch for the Improbability above, and then did a very quick watercolor job on it. I like the looseness… it’s a good exercise I think. So, what do you like best?

PS – don’t forget to vote for my instructable, the Hot Wheels Car Launcher!
Vote here: it’s the 7th one in the list.

I’ve decided to pick several cool IF’s for this week and link them here:

    well I am glad you forced yourself, these are lovely and I love the looseness of the watercolors, your work is always so fresh, uplifting and unique.
    The boxed in chap is so expressive – his pose says it all. And I love the bird on the bird – sorry call me a wimp but I cant pick a favorite!

    thanks all!
    yeah, I try to link to a few, but it’s so hard to pick just a couple of all the good ones!

  • yoon see [] :

    Lovely colour and style as always.
    By the way, why you love drawing Robot? Do you have special love to robot?
    I find you robot is so cute but he also needs friends like us…

  • Fadas & C.ª [] :

    I like the character of the first one – is hilariously funny! But love even more the character of the second one! His position is so cute!…

  • Dot [] :

    yoon see, I’m not really sure where the robot obsession came from. I just enjoy drawing them… they are fun with no real rules, and they have such personalities.

    Thanks all for the lovely comments and feedback! You guys rock.

  • Kylie [] :

    Love the watercolor washes!

  • Eric Barclay [] :

    Awesome colors. Both characters are wonderful. Just love your robots.

  • Jessie Lilac [] :

    I really like the top one! Great idea and the lovely washy watercolour!

  • Bella Sinclair [] :

    Hahaha! Yes, that would be quite impossible for me to do with my neck! I love your bird bot! And the little guy in the box…he looks quite comfy in there. I say, he would look really great boxed up on a store shelf so that I could buy him.

    OMG, your Twitter icon! HAHAHA! SO perfect. :D
