|Burst 2012 j. c. phillipps|
Here's another one for Illustration Friday - and, for Open Studio Weekend. The topic this week was Burst.
I think I struggled a bit last week with the topic of Imagination because it is so wide open. It could be anything, really. But Burst is a bit more specific. I immediately thought of bubbles. But I usually try to work away from what my first or second thought is. I don't want to be too obvious, yanno.
Eventually I got to four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie bursting out of the pie crust.
If you've been following my work, you know that I love birds. So bonus! Then I thought I'd put in the mystified baker to add some color and the simplified human figure makes it a little more suitable for a child's room.
Have a great week!
