Illustration Friday-Juggle

This is my entry for IF's "juggle" topic. I call it "tossed salad".

Drew the shapes in Freehand, painted a real background, combined everything in Photoshop.

Hope you like it! Let me know what you think.

Went back and added text. Which do you prefer?

Nice work! I love the sort of antiqued look it's got and the line quality is beautiful. I think I like the one with the lettering more.

One thing: the right arm looks like it's at an impossible angle if it's one person juggling, don't know if that was intentional or not (maybe the arms are being juggled too)

i agree with carol about the arms if it is one person doing the juggling, and i like the pic with the copy best sorta holds it all together

I really love this. I love the textues and colors really work! And I like both.

It's a toss up, I like them both very much! ;) Nice work with the veggies and text.

I like the one with the text. It looks like an ad for a grocery. It's cool!

The texture adds a nice, organic look to it. Nice use of color.

good job, I think the text adds more to it and completes the visual pun.
I also really like the look of the cheese one (yum, cheeeeese....) and the text makes them both match.
the textures and type add character to an otherwise digital-looking image.

If you're going to have it with "The Blues" I like the text. Great color and design...makes me hungry.

The piece with the lettering I'm liking better-has a vintage feel, I like the action and the flavors. Yum!

I will join in the chorus with "the one with the text looks best". I dig your muted color choices and textures. You also have a good eye for unique compositions. Nicely done.
