12: Kitchen Party

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Based on this week's Illustration Friday theme – crowded – I made this photo illustration of Kerry busy in the kitchen on Easter Sunday. I feel a bit guilty about even posting it to Illustration Friday, on account of doing no actual drawing. But I conjured up the concept in my head, performed the photo shoot atop our barstool chair (three more Kerrys didn't make the final cut) and set to work piecing it all together in Photoshop. I'm pretty proud of the way it turned out. And Kerry really likes the shirt she wore, so everybody wins.

this is SO cool! and if she had worn a different shirt, i don't think it would have had quite the same effect...especially the shadow of the blinds on her face mimicking the stripes. great stuff!
cheers,
kerry

Jeope,
You just cannot be stopped can you?

I need to fashion my stagnant blog after yours. Is it "immitation is the greatest form of flattery"?

I need to be more creative - because i really can't be at work. So i think a small project a week would be good for me.

Thanks for the inspiration!

1. Why does she have one leg in the oven?

2. How tall are your barstools?

Dave!

1. Which leg? I dunno. At least it's a leg and not a bun.

2. It's one of those chairs a pharmacist sits in. The seat's maybe 3-4 feet off the ground. Then I stood on top of the seat. Which was a task, 'coz it swivels too.

Dave said...

Your honey just to the left of the oven, her right leg appears set to "Char". hehehe. I was kidding about the barstools. The way you worded it, it sounded like you just sat the camera on the stool and that would be a pretty tall stool from that perspective!

This is fantastic. And yes, it is an illustration, because it ILLUSTRATES the topic. And you did a lot of work. I love it.
