Call Me Steam

A short post today.  I fussed over this one way too much already.

It’s my take on the Illustration Friday topic of the week: “whiskers”.

I spent hours drawing and redrawing this.  There’s also a full-color version with a more elaborate “fog” effect that I actually completed first, but then I stripped it back to the essential elements and am much happier with it.

The title to today’s post comes from a song by Jeremy Enigk from his album “Return of the Frog Queen”.  He’s perhaps best known as the frontman for the band Sunny Day Real Estate.

  3. Steamy. This is so creative. I like the drips coming from the whiskers. Would love to see the color version, too.
