Illustration Friday - SEA


I thought that a crisp illustration using illustrator would reflect the fact that I’ll be seeing the fishes in focus this summer now that I have a prescription mask. The funny thing is that bi-focal prescriptions were going for a cheaper price on e-bay than single prescription masks. I’m happy enough to see the fishes – I have no intention of catching up with my summer reading while I’m under the water.

This reminds me of a time I went to the Seattle aquarium and looked up at a glass ceiling skylight/fishtank. Not as beautiful as the real thing as you've seen. Maybe someday I will too. Beautiful colors and design!

I have finally realised I need bifocals. I permanently have my glasses perched on the end of my nose in class so I can read/see students. Lovely fish!

I LOVE the colors on this piece! For some reason I want to swim towards the light. Your computer illustration has just as much whimsy as your traditional!
BTY: It took me forever to figure out how to trash Bs comment. I'm not very blog savvy. I should have just asked for help.

So that means you can see clearly now... even in the rain... or maybe not - but would that work?

I don't wear glasses but Jim complains that about his when its raining...

Anyway I digress... I like your bright and clear design, and especially the colour contrast.

I really like the colors, and the simplicity of the overall design. I get the feeling they are swimming and moving.
