IF: The Blues

An entry for Illustration Friday:

When I read "The Blues", I thought "The Blooz", and that sounded like a monster; but instead of drawing a sad and blue one, I drew a happy orange one. And what, I wondered, would make a monster so happy? Probably the same things that make any red-blooded human being happy - finding a quarter while wearing hippo slippers and slurping soda pop.
And just for good measure, I gave him ribbons for horns.




Also, this was really fun to do, because it was my FIRST time using the paintbrush features on PhotoShop. It opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me!

I'll never sleep again.

I think his teeth look like mine--so I could hang with him!

your character is crazy, just looking at him makes you want to laugh too. I like your background, with the shadows and glow.

Whenever I am sad, I will think of Mr. Blooz and his cute and smilling eyes.
