Art created for the weekly illustration challenge site, IllustrationFriday.com. This is my take on the subject Caution.
I had two ideas for this piece. (Actually, three ideas if you include the quickly dismissed semi-naked chick in caution tape concept.) The first idea had to do with a runner bursting through a repeating black & yellow caution-tape finish line. The line marked the edge of a cliff and the runner continued past the edge, lunging into the sky. Was he flying or falling? Who knows? Maybe Ill do this picture sometime. It seems like a strong concept.
The second idea was some sort of smiling swindler trying to take advantage of a person. The key to this piece would be the use of the black and orange-yellow color caution sign palette. It hit me that the swindlers tie would make for a perfect pathway for the repeating black & yellow caution pattern. Several days later, the picture was complete.
