Liquid Dreams

Sorry for my absence, but hopefully I'm back with a bang and a backfire. I had fun drawing this one up. I consider it a rough but do you think it would make a good inspirational poster if I do a tight cleanup of it? I really want to. I'm hoping this little piece of Americana might inspire flies as well as people. The Illustration Friday word for the week was 'Liquid'. Hope they don't throw me out. ha.

  3. Obviously the incessant ice-cream truck jingle I've been hearing in the neighbourhood has been ringing in your area as well. Inspiring!

    1. Well not me, but glad you stopped by to tell me so. Should I make it into an inspirational poster?

    1. Oh, no, no, noooo. I like how YOU think! It's funny though, I never made the connection to the ice cream truck, but both you and AHA got the same idea, and I love it.

  10. Rough? That looks like a mighty fine Ted Blackman piece to me. I suppose I'd be curious to see what level of finish you'd want to take this to. I read this as an ice cream truck gag at first too, because of how the little flies and other flies seem to gather toward it. It works both ways though.

    1. Thanks, Mauricio. If I do this as a poster maybe I should push the 'ice cream truck' spin even more.

  15. I love it, and voted "hysterical" but I would have liked to see some sort of a musical PA system on top of the truck, just like the old Good Humor trucks. That would give the impression that the kids were coming to the truck because they heard the music. Just a thought. Still a great gag, I laughed out-loud when I saw it.
