IF Pattern

I stumbled across a contest on the web to create your own Mountain Dew can. Being a Mt. Dew drinker I gave it a shot and came up with my own Mt. Dew logo. I'm reusing that logo to create a pattern for this week's Illustration Friday topic on "Pattern". (click on image for larger view)

IF Infinite

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Infinite" and I really struggled at first to come up with an idea. However, when I was working on another drawing that required an image of a drop it sparked an idea in my head. This image is meant to illustrate that there is infinite love and infinite pain in the universe. (oooh, very deep and mystical)

I didn't want to just have a plain white background so at first I toyed with the idea of a starry background to represent the universe. Then I realized the thorns would just get lost on that background. I switched to a flesh tone background as I thought this image might look cool as a tattoo.

IF Magnify & Strong

I never got a chance to submit for last week's Illustration Friday topic "Magnify". I thought I'd combine it with this week's topic "Strong" and show the super strong ant up close.
