Like this drawing.
I like the font also. Did you hand write it? Whether or not it goes perfectly with your drawing style!

Nice to see some light on your situation after sinking in quick sand and possibly being broken afterwards! Light at the end of the tunnel ... and in your glasses which is a nice touch. I like your choice of colour and drawing is great as always :)

I love the coloring and the light, and those snails are a nice touch!

Anthony Woodward said...

yeah I think I made it through without being broken...
Now I have a month of art openings to look forward to, bring on the champange!
BTW the picture is heavily influenced by Euan Heng. esp the snails and torch

Love it! Great hand done text- it works really well with the image. Is he coming home late from detention or something? Hope he makes it.

Ok, this is a word I never use..but sweet! Looks good, the snails give it that extra punch. Good luck on the 11th!

This comes across as some kind of instructional warning poster giving out free good advice :). Of course, it's also a commonsense philosophical observation.

This has strong use of tonal contrasts - the dark top half (that also contains the only areas of pure white) and the lighter hues of the bottom half. It effectively captures the feeling of night in suburbia - isolated in the darkness, and yet with civilisation all around.

I love the snails!

Upon further inspection and a former comment that included the word 'sweet' ... I would like to see the snails behind him squashed, and the guy fumbling like he only just found the light :)

Anthony Woodward said...

Hey Ian, I love your comments Ian they're always so insighful!
Anon: I thought it was like the Autralian 'Sweet!" as in 'ahhh mate that's sweeet!' as in cool...Not really sure. But lately the snails have been out in force and I hate stepping on them. Such a horrible way to go out!

Tried reading 'sweet' with strong Aus accent several times - guess I like 'sick' better. Snails can make a nice crunching sound - don't wear bare feet and try growing vegetables :)
