outside: sruble

I’ve been experimenting with my digital style to make it more painterly and yet retain the flat color that I like so much. This first piece of new art is an example of that experiment and works for the CBIG blog prompt this month (outside) and the Illustration Friday prompt for this week (atmosphere). Instead of raining cats and dogs, it’s raining on the cats and dogs!

Dogs and Cats and Umbrellas

I love the colors and the design. And I love the new twist on that old saying. Today, however, I think the sky outside looks like it will work the other way and rain those critters down in a pouring cascade.

Nice work*:)

I like this a lot. Looks like gouache.

Thanks Ginger! Looks like the cats and dogs are going to need their umbrellas for another day. At least it's cool out.

Thanks Di! Happy to hear it looks like paint :)
