Illustration Friday - SIMPLE


The deceptive simplicity of an egg. The illustration was created entirely from circles.
The perfect simple comfort meal – a slice of good crusty white bread toasted, buttered and topped with a poached egg, a sprinkle of Maldon salt and freshly ground black pepper – yumm!

Yumm I so agree - and just what I had for breakfast today too! (except I may not have used the Maldon salt - not sure which was in the grinder ;-)

Num num! Reminds me of many a breakfast in the wee morning hours. I love how you created the entire illo using only one object (a circle)...exquisite detail in the little fried bubbles on the edges...thatis a subtle yet important detail to really remind one of an egg. Bravo. Ok, time to cook.

Wowee
lots of lovely comments and all from people whose own illustrated blogs are wonderful (apart from Rachel whose job it is to be the art critic and encourager of her nieces and nephews)
