expired



When I saw the word, expired, for this week's Illustration Friday challenge, I thought of a piece I did for the word, sour, a while back. The sour image was done in my old Photoshop style, so I didn't want to enter it, but I still liked some elements of the work, so I decided to recreate and improve it, in Illustrator. The top image is the new one, the bottom one, the original. Better, huh?
I always loved the colors here - the fushcia and white against the mustard yellow. So Yummy!

Oh Lord, Don't I know the feeling. 18 years of going to be with my grandparents who really didn't know how parent at all. Sour milk was the choice of the day. They would forget, the poor dears, that they even had grandchildren in the house. My little sister and I would try to make our own breakfast only to wake to expired cereal and milk. EEWWWWWWW!!! The look on this poor child's face says it all. You nailed it girly. Awesome!

The top one is indeed a vast improvement. I love the softer edges, the colors, and the details you added.

I've ruined many a bowl of perfectly good cereal after pouring expired milk on top. Always check first!

Bella Sinclair said...

Oh, that's so neat! Two totally different looks. Amazing, really, what a few lines can do. Love the addition of the background, though. It really adds a lot of dimension!

Marilyn Patrizio said...

Yes, I like the new one much better too! I had exactly the same thought as you for this topic!
