Illustration Friday: Wired


My submission for Illustration Friday's "Wired" is from one of my posters and the title is "five O" clock". This image was also reworked for a greeting card and it was used for a puzzle in Japan. A birdcage is like a wire house, no?

Wow Val, this is a real high wire act. There doesn't seem to be any place to pee, though. Bad Dog (retruned)

JO said...

Very cute, great "wire house".

Ces said...

Absolutely and what a marvelous image. What an appropriate sentiment also for 5:00 o'clock except sometimes it is 6:30 or 10:00PM for me.

I can personally vouched that your art work bring instant gratification to those who behold it.

Gabrielle said...

5pm is just like that, isn't it? The buildings are still all willy nilly and humming from the day's activities, and not only do you have to leave them physically, you also have to leave the mind set that comes with your job... and sometimes that's tough.

This is a great image!!
