Marshall Art Studio: Illustration Friday

Illustration Friday


Tech Talk

Corel Painter IX, Gouache tool. From start to finish, this probably took 3 hours to "finish".

I'm Baaaaack ...

I've been to busy with career and family stuff to iFriday lately, but it's never been far from my mind. My trusty Wacom tablet died, and didn't get replaced until last month. And truthfully, some of the iFriday themes haven't been that exciting to me. However, waiting around for the perfect theme to roll around was sounding more like an excuse as the months rolled on.


This illustration depicts a very specific breakup situation. Probably too personal to bring up here.


I noticed a lot of romantic interpretations of this week's theme. Seems like I haven't been gone a long time.

What the Heck is Illustration Friday?

Think of it as a voluntary, client-free playground for illustrators. A topic is posted every Friday morning. Participants from around the world create, post and share their interpretations.

No Client? Why Bother?

At this stage of my career, I need a weekly public exercise to draw anything at all.

Freshness Dating

Unless otherwise stated, my iFriday work is all-new, created soley for that week's theme. Other Freshness categories include:

  • Repurposed
    Old art, lifted straight from the archives with no current modifications
  • Refurbished
    Previously-viewed art, modified and enhanced for current times
  • Alt Theme
    Past iFriday themes, presented when I have nothing for the current week's theme

Mission Statement

"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not."
