Illustration Friday – Packed

1 Oct

This image illustrates the word ‘packed’.

My first mental picture of this image used a more realistic human figure. It was kind of a surrealistic, disturbing take, and there was going to be another guy packing the guy in the suitcase. I tried drawing it, and it just wasn’t working, so I decided I could get my idea into shape if I cartooned and exaggerated it. I decided a “Bigfoot” cartoon style, where all the limbs are tubes, would work great. I couldn’t get that off the top of my head, so I looked at a R. Crumb book for reference. The big shoe I drew is a completely Robert Crumb type of object.
