103: Losing Out To Gravity
I haven't done an honest-to-goodness Illustration Friday submission since the middle of December. To be truthful, I haven't had much urge to draw since Christmas – but I'm not bothered that these ebbs and flows happen. It's just like I mentioned earlier, I've been having fun with my camera (which is evident over on Flickr), and primarily at the expense of drawing. But I saw through this sketch I did on the weekend and coloured quickly this evening, and now present my submission for I-F's current theme of gravity.
The concept? Simple enough: an unfortunate fellow who's lost the battle with gravity. Maybe some of you checking in can relate. I'm not there myself (nor do I ever intend to be), but I can relate somewhat with the gradual fight with getting older – to be specific, a current battle with a sore back that painfully came to light last week in a ball-hockey match with whippersnappers close to ten years my junior.
A closer look at this illustration can be had over on my Flickr base (click here, then hit the magnifying glass icon to view).
