Illustration Friday - CHAIR

This is the latest I’ve ever submitted an illustration friday picture, but I’ve still managed to get in under the wire wa hey!

Memories of Brighton last summer.

That's what I'm thinking, great illo! I adore the way you got the expression on his face! Did you do this from a foto or from memory?

Lovely illustration. It reminds me of days at the beach here in Belgium. I love the stripes on the chair.
A perfect illo for this week's theme.

He is just like the little emperors we see across China.

thanks for commenting all of you, I've taken a while to reply because I've still been feeling awful.
Cin, I do like brush and ink or brushpens.
Ives 77, I did take some photos on the day so they were very useful reference.
Stephanie, I thought that just colouring the stripes would give the picture that 'chair' emphasis
Cream 2 seconds later he was jumping up and down - so only a brief moment of respite
Lin - not often very angelic - as rachel says a bit of a little emperor

This is absolutely perfect. You've brilliantly rendered his expression, his posture, his mood, the chair, the foreshortening. It doesn't get any better than this.
