Illustration Friday: Open

Poor Bridget! She was so busy talking on her cell phone
that she stepped back without noticing the open manhole.

This is an exciting week over at Illustration Friday with the first ever gallery contest.
You can vote for your 5 favorite illustrations here.

oops, and nobody else seems to have noticed either. Great image. I love the colours - the dress is especially lovely.

Poor thing - but then again, talking on a cell phone while trying to do anything else is just begging for trouble. Great job - love your style and your way with color! This would make a nice editorial illustration or spot piece in a magazine...

Hi Angela - I'm Angela also; are you related to THE master/artist Matteson? Love your blog! I'll be watching it.

Your use of color continues to be masterful. Great scheme and good use of chroma to bring Bridget forward.

Great movement, too!

As someone with no ability to multi-task when on the phone, I can relate.

Bridget should look into getting an iphone with a speaker. :) Your style is so unique. Looks like little wood shavings underneath.

Elizabeth Metz said...

ha! I love all the little clueless, plugged-in people! But I do feel bad for Bridget.

And I love your style!

I love the abstract motion, -a!
And the fact that the peeps in the background are oblivious to her peril. Haha!!!!! Cell-phone users can be such turds sometimes, maybe she got what was coming to her?
Fingers crossed you make the gallery!
