11: Evolution Of Winnipeg Man

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
I finally finished something in time to submit for Illustration Friday (it helps that they extended their deadlines to include weekends). This week's Illustration Friday theme was the word bloom, in honour of spring I suppose – which has arrived practically everyplace but Winnipeg. So to honour my hometown and its hardy denizens, I've created this number. It's the 'blooming' of a Winnipeg man – inspired by an old illustration of human evolution from National Geographic. This picture features a combination of pen sketches (for the clothes), mangled photocopies of the magazine illustrations and Photoshop work.

A very original take on the theme.

I love your creative take on the theme! And I too just had to clear snow off my car today. You're not alone. :0P

This is so funny and what a different take on the subject.
