This is my entry for Illustration Friday's topic "phobia".
For this one, I painted a background in acrylic, collaged some paper over for the bottom portion, then cut out some photocopies of a snake and a bug from a clipart book and cemented them down with gel medium. Painted a frame over the edges. Scanned into Photoshop, applied a filter to give it slightly more graphic feel, and added the lettering with a blending mode. This was a quicker effort than usual. Created today, Friday, specifically for this challenge. I enjoyed the process, even though it was much quicker, more organic and more spontaneous than my usual modus operandai.
