Illustration Friday: "SOAKED"..


It's been awhile since I participated in an "Illustration Friday" .. But here is an entry for the this week's Theme: "Soaked". For whatever reason, I imagined a poor Clown being soaked by a bunch of misfit kids. Perhaps the setting is an oldtime kid's show like "Howdy Doody", where a bunch of audience members are allowed to soak "Seymour The Clown" with a bunch of different spraying devices? I dunno. Who's to say where inspiration flows from..

Here's what it ended up looking like:
I didn't bother inking or coloring this one. Not enough time, currently. And the drawing has a few probs. But on the whole, I'm fairly happy with the way it turned out. It has the Wally Wood/MAD magazine qualities that I was hoping for, at least.

Thanks, for visiting my Blog.. See ya!

Really great! I love the "Jughead" type hat on the misfit to the left... neat little details like that make it so much fun to look at.

Thanks for the kind comments, Chavah.. And for the visit!

Yeah, crazy hats are always more visually interesting than just hair. Unless it's CRAZY hair, of course! hah

Maybe I was unconciously thinking of the "Our Gang" kids, or some other group of l'il miscreants?
