IF - balloon


"Papa's stomach ballooned so much during Thanksgiving dinner that the button on his vest popped off! He hadn't even gotten to the pumpkin pie yet!"

My 1st real 'scene' illo done in Illustrator...so much fun! I'm learning what works for me and what doesn't and it's getting easier. I still may go back in Photoshop and add some texture and shading, but then it won't be a vector piece anymore...hmmmm, I do love the clean lines of vector art.

We spent Thanksgiving at my sister-in-law's beautiful new home in Olympia. Her kitchen island, granite top, of course, was actually bigger than our bathroom! This thing was huge! The 2-story house also had an elevator and a covered deck with a gas fireplace!

HA! What a great take on the word! It ain't a good Thanksgiving until someone loses an eye (from a popped button, of course). Excellent!

Oops! Poor dad teddy. Yes, vector illustrations can be so aesthetically simple on the eye.

There's always room for pumpkin pie! Hehe..

Nice vector work! I feel the same way. I really like the cleanness of vector illustration, but adding textures in Photoshop can be wonderful too.
