IF - breezy
This weeks entry for Illustration Friday is breezy.
I really liked this part of the illustration.
How did the inspiration for this illo come to life? Do you use open source? Like different kind of Ubuntu, Linux, Open Office, Firefox, Wordpress and so on? There is a version of Ubuntu called Breezy Badger, and the obvious illustration would have been a drunk badger. How ever my mind wandered and I wanted to spin around the Ubuntu logo.
When trying a open sours for the first time, I was not sure what to expect. Feeling like I was hanging in mid air and not that many people to help me if something was not the way I liked it to be. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised! I gave me a feeling of freedom, I could do what ever I wanted and still have full control that no virus would come and destroy it. It was this feeling was it that brought me to the next question. What kind of feeling do a person have that go jumping out of a plane? Would it be windy or just breezy? Would they have that same feeling of freedom? My illustration ended up with three people that are free falling.
This is how the Ubuntu logo looks like.
Medium used: charcoal and watercolour.
