IF: Illustration Friday! Home Sweet Home.
Yeah! It's Illustration Friday and I drew something for it! :0)
I am a bit tired, so I will be brief. This week's topic is SWEET. It's a coincidence that I am working on a logo for a cupcake bakery at this moment. Obviously it influenced my subject. I wanted to do cupcakes because cupcakes are on the mind.
I decided what fun it would be to tie in another "SWEET" reference to add another dimension to my illustration and to give my cupcake illo some flair and personality. I decided to combine the comforts of home with one of America's most favorite comfort foods. I wanted to illustrate the All American Dream of a white picket fence home on the top of the hill with some trim bushes, a freshly mowed lawn and a clean WELCOME front door mat.
I, of course took an illustrator's license with my take on each of those elements to make them theme appropriate. I added an cross-stitch emulated hand drawn Home Sweet Home at the bottom. I hope that this image evokes the quiet, safe comforts of home. Home really is a SWEET place to be... Even more sweet when we are enjoying a nice sweet treat. Enjoy the illustration everyone and have a great start to your weekends. Happy Illustration Friday!
Till next time...
Keep sketching, keep thinking, keep laughing and most important of all, keep making art.
