Illustration Friday - Similar

My entry to Illustration Friday's topic: Similar.

This is Marcel and Massimo and they are discussing the current economic climate.

I was using this background pattern as a placeholder while I created the actual one. Then I realized it looked exactly like the lino floor in my kitchen, so I left it as is. (Does anyone else struggle with knowing when to stop? I do!)

Love this illustration, keeping the placeholder as a background was a good call!

Knowing when to stop with art is such a constant struggle. I'm still looking at paintings I've "finished" and sealed while thinking, "You know what this needs? A little bit more paint here..." But since it's already sealed I can't add that bit of paint.

I've definitely experienced that when creating paintings and sculptures. It's also quite a problem when writing!

So you do illustrations? Or are you a specialist in graphic design as a whole? Forgive me but I don't actually know what you do! :)

Love that illustration you've done, though. Have you ever thought of making greeting cards?
