Illustration Friday: "Brave"

When your name is Bad Luck Becky, then wearing high heels is pretty brave. Enjoy.

Notice in the picture frame is my last IF topic for 'adrift.'

This is great! Thanks for the laugh and how many of us have felt at one time or another in our heels. I love the wall paper and the details on the chairs, too!!

Ginny Baker said...

Love her expression. Definitely gave me a chuckle. ;o) So much wonderful detail in this!

Great expression

Thanks everyone. Glad you got a laugh out of this. When I was a kid my sisters would dress me up, so I know what walking in high heels is like.

For those of you who don't know, this character (Bad Luck Becky) is going to be the subject of every Illustration Friday topic, so you can look forward to that if it suites your fancy.

Funny! I like that you included a previous illo in the current one---nice touch. Great expressions and traveling in heels can be a harrowing experience.

Any day wearing high heels is a brave one! lol! Wonderful illustration, color palette and background pattern!

YOU TOO? What is it with older sisters & baby brothers? Don't worry, I got her back when I roasted her Barbie dolls. :o)
Great challenge to yourself too Mark in using her in the IF weekly. Great work my friend!

Mark Harmon said...

@Sam - I couldn't roast their barbies because they were like 17 or 18. I was only 4. I had to just sit there and take it. Of course, when I was 4 I liked jumping around in a tu-tu.

Okay, I think I've said too much. HAHA.

This is my first time on your site and I'm enjoying myself immensely. This one made me laugh right out loud, so I had to comment. By the way, I found you by a comment you left on the 'My Sister the Freak' site.

Thanks Cali. I really enjoy reading Dani's stuff. Her art is AMAZING!
