Illustration Friday: Excess


When Ned walked into the laundry room and witnessed the overflow of excess suds he knew Billy had been up to trouble once again.

I'm lacking an excess of time this week, and the ideas weren't flowing so good, so I only have time for this quick colored sketch.

This topic made me think of the Tricky song, 'Excess', which is on his 'Blowback' album. I thought it would be fun to listen to while I brainstormed ideas, but my album seems to have gone missing. :(

You say this is a quick colored sketch and I think the look of it is great! I like the texture it has, and it's a good composition for a good idea

I like how Billy is hiding behind the washing machine. You wonder, is he going to get caught? Will he kick Ned in the shin and run for it?

Oh, and none of your characters are follically-challenged. We need to do something about that. XD

Great job with the colors, too!

Poor little Billy. I can relate to him, but my mishaps usually involved fire. :-)

Really great piece. I love the composition. I have no extra time either, yet here I am...

Thanks everyone!! :)

I call it quick because I really wanted to continue working on my gouache painting technique, but that takes several, several hours, and requires me not to be so tired.

I used to play hide and seek with a neighbor kid that would sit like that behind everything. After one game of hide and seek where I surprised him by finding him earlier than he had anticipated, I discovered he was sitting that way because he was trying to not poop his pants. Unfortunately he lost at both. :P
