Illustration Friday - Communication

9x12 - prismacolor pencils on smooth 100lb bristol

There were a lot of ways to go with this because there are lots of ways to communicate. =)

However, I went with the obvious (or not) form of communication - through art. As artists we strive to get our messages, thoughts, feelings, opinions, whatever - out into the world via our medium of choice. And if you're a parent as well, you're also communicating to your child/ren how important art is - in your life and others by sharing your work with them, making art together or taking them to exhibits, galleries or museums. (Also I think that Americans for the Arts commercial "Art - ask for more" sends a very cool message to kids and parents)

this is great - i love the colors, and the little flowers in the floor (carpet?) but the balloon really struck me first!

Thank you! I ran out of steam on it at the end...sigh. The still life orange sketch I was working on just before it kinda zapped my zest (no pun intended!)
