Illustration Friday-Emergency


Click image for a larger view.

This is my entry for IF's "emergency" topic. Photographed my hand with duct tape, then drew the lines and shapes in Freehand. I then painted a background on the inside of a grocery bag. I combined everything in Photoshop! Duct tape is wonderful stuff for many of life's emergencies.

I should be able to post regularly now I'm done feeding hundreds of hungry boyscouts for the summer. More on that later, if you're interested.

Also, click on my profile, and then find my photoblog for some pictures of Orcas and Humpbacks from my Alaskan cruise. There are some photos of Humpbacks doing "bubble net feeding", which was incredible to see firsthand.

I look forward to visiting your IF entries this next week, as I now have more time...

Nicely done. Duct tape is amazing stuff. My craziest use was taping gauze to the bottom of a horse's hoof.

Duct Tape, as all good Canadian's know (at least those who watch the Red Green Show), is the handyman's secret weapon - especially for staving off an emergency situation.
