Illustration Friday: BALLOON


This is my IF submission for this week. I used a mixture of techniques that include collage, ink, and digital manipulation. Normally I create my work through traditional painting and illustration methods but I wanted to experiment a little with this one. Go to Illustration Friday to learn more about this challenge!

It's so lovely, makes one wonder who has the most human qualities the crow or the balloon.

Yay birds! Your style is stunning! I love the expressions both the bird and balloon have. Maybe the balloon is morose because it is flat? Nice work :)

I love this. The colours are so gentle and beautiful, and I like the way that seems at odds with the slightly sinister crow's hat and the face on the balloon.

Great!

Enthralling and just a little creepy.
A successful experiment I’d say.

I like this one. It has that yummy collagey feel that I can't describe but I know it when I see it.
