Illustration Friday,

Here is my take on "Safe". This was done for a magazine and it was about a father and his son and chocolate. I didn't say that it was a well written, or even an uplifting piece but, hey, I was just the illustrator.

The space at the bottom was for the text of the story. I have even used it myself for text backgrounds in things that I have been working on.

I like this one. As a father myself, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy. It also makes me miss the days of hugs from my dad, who has been gone for 23 years. So in a way, it's bittersweet. The hallmark of a great piece like this is that it provokes strong emotions on several levels.

Thanks Eric for your valuable suggestions.

This is an absolute beauty! And that's our job as illustrators, to make people want to read the crap ;)

Great job!
