This is a great illo. Love the simplicity of your style. Do you start with scanned line drawings or is it all done digitally?

This image is too funny ... but what is dad doing going through his teenage daughters dresser in the first place? lol :0 )

Life is full of surprises .... Wonder what reason this dad has going trhough the little girls drawer ......

Funny espression on teh dad!

Don said...

Definately love this illo. Style is superb. The expression is just classic. Great original take on "surprise."

Plot note: Being at the dresser does demand the question, "Why is he looking in there?" My first thought was maybe he sometimes does the laundry (I do most of ours), but then the discovery would be at the folding table.

Courtney said...

hysterical and (as the mother of a little girl) terribly frightening, great job. :)

Shano said...

carla said...

Greta humor! I like the contrast between the bog hand and the tiny, tiny undie... Great style!

I've gotten a lot of "what's he doing snooping through his daughter's stuff, anyway?!" That's what my wife said, too. :) I think you all are hiding something in the sock drawer...

To answer Rachelle's question, I usually draw things out in pencil first, then ink the outlines. Then, I erase all the pencil marks so it's nice n' clean, and scan it. Then, I do all the color in Photoshop. It seems to work pretty well... and outlining everything makes it easy to select just the pieces I want to fill in.


Thanks for all the wonderful comments, everybody!

What a wonderful charicature...I really dig his outfit and hair - perfect! I also like the extra touch of the starburst effect behind the underwear. Great stuff all around!!
