illustration friday - dance
When I first read the IF theme of "dance" I thought of Napoleon Dynamite and the practicing of his dance moves in his bedroom. Once I thought of that everything else fell into place. I had fun working on this piece!

Ha! Very nice indeed. Do more.
 
Very funny!
Like the red pants and shoes!

I also read you were advertising in Best Friends. Could you give me some info on how to advertise with them and the cost. Thanks!
 
Hah! That's great! I know a few such dancers... ;p
 
That is exactly the movie I thought of before I even read your decription. I remember the 80's and those shorts. Shoot me if I ever wear those again! Brandi
 
I love the bedroom! And the lighting!
 
thanks everyone! I had fun working on it!

Sharon - yes this one is done mostly on the computer. I prefer to work all by hand when possible, but for time saving sake I did this one digitally.

So glad ya'll like it. I have so much fun seeing everyone entries and am really enjoying the challenge of IF.

your illustration is great…
 
This is super fun!!! it was a great movie too!
 
Those little shorts don't seem to be impeding his groovy moves - very fun Claudine!
 
i love the carpet, I don't know why, the mix of the argyle pattern and little crude fringe all around looks good!
 
This is FANTASTIC!!! Love it!!!

This is so funny, I loves Stan's tight shorties. The argyle bed spread surse says it all.
 
This is very funny. I can just imagine this guy dancing every night in his 1980's shorts.

Napoleon Dynamite, look out! This is so much fun, it's obvious you had a great time making it. I love the argyle!
 
I absolutely adore your style. Fantastic. You've sertainly captured this week's theme well.
 
Haha! Can't help laughing! Excellent design for your background.
 
And here I thought I was the only person on the East Coast who has a spotlight in his bedroom. Bah! Foiled again!

Fantastic illo. Your mixed media is great. Where did you go to Collage? (Sorry, bad pun) Keep up the great art!

PS: Glad to hear your puppy Toby is tip-top again.
