Illustration Friday "Balloon"


The balloon is floating off of the edge of the earth. I also managed to work in a speech balloon.

Done in ink, watercolor, and gouache in a Moleskine watercolor pad.

Really great illustration. I love how the water disappears. Great work on working in an extra bubble. I didn't think of that kind of bubble or my character would have said "I could swim faster than this," or "so what if I'm a polar bear who doesn't like icy cold water. Get over it". Again, love love love the illo.:)
