Illustration Friday: Repair

                                        ©2008 Deborah Melmon

Daniel had that sinking feeling that his quick Saturday morning chore was going to turn into a weekend of repairs....I did this illustration years ago for the Palo Alto Weekly Newspaper. I think maybe 15 years ago...yikes, where has the time gone?? Thanks to Photoshop, I scanned in my image (had to scan in four sections and piece it together) and then changed a bunch of stuff that I never really liked about the piece. I altered the guys shirt, the length of his arm, the color of the wall, the pillow, the dogs face, all sorts of things. Easy repairs!

ohoooo! This is fantastic Deb! It's repair alright from every stand point of view in the illustration and what you did to it in order to post it. :o)

It is an awesome illustration, there is so much going on. I mean everywhere I look there is danger or damage about to happen! I love the movement, perspective, colors well... everything!! Wonderful work Deb!

Oh, thank you Alicia! The article that I illustrated this for was about the hazards of home improvement.
Fun to illustrate chaos!
