I-F: Gravity


I love that feeling of floating (yes you got it, of no gravity). and i love the term 'gone fishing' for 'on vacation'. I've never been fishing in my life, but i reckon it would be a great vacation (as long as you didn't take your mobile phone!) But we tend to do so much on our holidays, which of course is exciting, but i find i am getting less and less time to just relax. being surrounded by wilderness with just the fish and the birds, no power lines, phones, or computers sounds bliss to me at the moment.

I just realised that I did a similar illustration for Under The Sea for I-F back in April last year. Similar composition, but different treatment. (I think I'm also using better paper and have a better scanner so that makes a big difference too!) It's good to look back and see where you started.

Anyway, I think I'm going to use this week's I-F for my website's 'on hold' image while I 'go fishing' for 4 months...

This is really nice. You captured that feeling very well and the colors are beautiful.

I am looking for a good scanner do you mind if I ask what you are using? Thanks.

We used to go fishing a lot when I was a kid in Minnesota, the land of ten thousand lakes. It was fun, and so is your cute illustration!
