Illustration Friday: Seed



Ingrid was really beginning to regret swallowing that sunflower seed three weeks ago....



I wanted to try my hand at doing a less literal piece since my work is rarely abstract...

The first thought that came to mind when I saw the first illo, was what a great serving tray it would make! (printed on the inside bottom)

I love both versions!

Richard Cardona said...

very nice work. great color. and simplicity.

Kate said...

Clever. Love them both. The brown is so nice to look at, but then with the blue of the other piece and the sunflower echoed in both, they seem to work together very well.

Paola said...

Both pieces are great and they really look amazing together!
Ingrid made me remember those times when I was a kid and I swallowed a chewing gum, adults saying that a plant would grow inside me, but I never could imagine how a chewing gums tree could look like ^.^
I really like this style sheree!

Love the second one! Great hands and I like the way you colored the flower. (I was always afraid that I really had carrots growing in my ears as a kid... hee hee).

Great pictures! The second one really speaks to me. It's lovely!

Gaia said...

:D Such a nice idea and illustration Sheree! It's funny and clever and as with all you works, I LOVE Ingrid's expression! :D

I also enjoyed seeing your new sketches of your dog. Great idea! I particularly like the "deco-like" line work

Lovely illo! I swallowed so many pieces of gum in my life, I must have a forest growing in my stomach. Very cute concept!

Oh, I love your little mushroom picture too!

Sheree,

I had such a nice time exploring your blog... and then I visited your website.
WOW!
You are so very talented!
Your seed illustrations are no exception. I love them both.

Thanks so much for your kind comments.
