Illustration Friday - "burning"

toast burning


As soon as I read the theme this week....and since it is breakfast time here...I immediately thought of something I hate...burning toast....

so I did a quick little 5 minute sketch and these guys came to life...

meet Sally the Toaster....she always thought way too hard when she was working and sometimes she really burned her friends Larry and Moe....needless to say it wasn't a good way to start the day.....but after some scrapping and a JAM session....things were back to normal....

Happy Friday Everyone!!!!

p.s. Illustrators....don't forget to start thinking about your 2011 Marketing ...you can have a jump start and get a really cool deal from this project!!!
