Illustration Friday: "Crowded"

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Squeeze, Without the Play, 2005 • Col-Erase, Pentel Brush Pen and Staedtler Pigment Liner

I decided not to ruin this by coloring it. If you wanna take a crack at it, though, I've got a bigger version here. Word.
I think any bus rider worth his/her salt has been in a situation like this at one time or another. You don't have to have a ton of people to be crowded, f'real.
Or how about that one guy/girl that corners you at a party and invades your space? There ya go.

I'm itchin' to get out of this here town. In less than a week, I'll be Stateside, eating my way through 3 cities. If I'm lucky, I'll run into David Witt in Minneapolis at the Oxes show. That has nothing to do with eating, but it's cool nonetheless.

Oh yeah, if you do color the bigger version, let me know...I wanna see!

Swear to G*d, I almost did the same thing. I was gonna redo a doodle from those prescription receipt books we drew in and it was exactly like this!

Mine'll probably be up tomorrow night or Thurs.

Know that feeling well!

I hear ya, Charlie. First year of Graphic Design class, that was me too.

Hi, Carol...you cutie! ;)

Thanks for the great comments, folks.

J-man...I can't wait to see what you're gonna do. The one that I drew here was based on an sketchbook drawing from a couple of years ago.

funny concept. I especially like the woman's annoyed face.

Is that a woman? More a monster ... she is positively scary. This sure illustrates crowded and space invaders.
