Illustration Friday - Refresh



I have to note that the background for this image is taken from a photograph of a mosaic I worked on in Redfern last year with kids from the local school - slightly manic but lots of fun..refreshing!

  4. Haha! Crazy straws, fantastic! Love that stained glass kinda texture in the background from the mosaic, the colors a tad more subdued so it stays back. Such bright and summery kids, and in great shoes. :)

  8. I love the crazy straws! I remember those! And the background is wonderful. Taking a picture of a mosaic you did previously is a great idea.

  10. ...and Claire, how're you liking the new IF? I can't say I like it just yet. It prompts less clicks to the participants website and so probably less comments unless your illo just draws someone in immediately. and i can no longer upload from my iPad...:(

    1. Yeah, I certainly not crazy about it...took ages to load and I ended up using my blog reader for the first time to find my old favourites (like Michele Thomas!) There's a bit of a discussion going on their site you might want to have a look and comment

  15. This is so satisfying psychedelic and bizarre - like a freaked out seventies TV commercial for softdrink or something - love it! The straw concept in particular, is inspired, and the mosaic background really adds to the whole thing.
