sticky

i'm like a moth to the flame when it comes to food that is unnatural colors, especially blue food! i will try almost any food (especially junk food) that is a weird flavor (i actually tried tamarind soda once....yes, it was bbq flavor!), and when i was a kid, my eyes nearly burst from my head anytime i saw cotton candy! the inspiration for this image comes from when blanch hands one of the pink ladies (marty?) that impossible heap of cotton candy in 'grease'....once again, you might get a better image if you enlarge it 2x (takes a sec for the pop-up box to show in the bottom r-h corner of the image's first enlargement)

oh, and i had every intention of getting away from the whole linear thing this week, but how could i? it's blue food!!! i'd also like to note that this is the very first time i have gotten my idea, executed it and posted to illo friday ON friday! yeah for me!

Very cool drawing. I used to love cotton candy when I was a kid. Your illo reminded me of how it would kinda smush up and melt in the spot where you were eating it, and how it would stick to your face if you weren't careful. I like your Rain illo too.

You get such amazing textures just with lines! This is a great take on "Sticky" and very summery as well.
