Clean


Clean I. I did this on blue tag board with coloured pencil. Not sure if I like this one or the one where colour was added.

great concept! I definitely like the first one better, the yellow is a bit jarring. if the blue was more contrasty it might work even better...?

I like the yellow one best, it is a little jarring but I like the textuer and it also puts the house in some sort of perspective, specially the window.

Amy Zaleski said...

Great idea, Ellen! It's like the cross section of a doll house. I like them both but the yellow makes it pop more especially with the window!

I like them both, and really like the comnposition and way you drew it. :-)

i like them both! nicely done :)

I like the yellow one too. The spot of light shining in the window adds some depth and a focal point. Cheers!

I actually like the bottom one best...it creates more of a statement for me. I see this obsessed family spending all their time cleaning and dusting, and all the while the sun is shining and they're missing out! I also love the grainy texture and the way a bit og the yellow comes through the window. Good one, Ellen!

This is a sublime pic - it captures so much humanity, with such style and deftness! You know the version without the colour is the right one :). I want to see this on the cover of a CD, or an independent comic, or a children's picture book, or as a magazine editorial illustration. I love that it was done with organic (non-computer) tools as well.

Occasionally, I download favourite IF pics, because I know I'll want to see them again and I see one of my faves is now on your masthead (was that "Float"?) - an excellent choice!
