Illustration Friday: Cars

So here's my first attempt at an IF topic ^.^ I've been unusually busy this week so didn't really dedicate enough time to it as I probs should have done, but I was determined to do at least something.

It's 10:30 on thursday night, so pretty close to the deadline, but better late than never :)

My first idea was to do cute little vegetable/food cars, hence this little guy: (it's a tomato... suppose that would be obvious with colour...)Buuuut, I went to see Pirates of the Carribean today (good film *thumbs up*) and on my ticket was printed:

'Pirates of the Car'! This made me giggle at the image in my head until I thought it would actually fit this topic pretty well. Since I always draw this pirate guy anyway :) So I went home and came up with my final IF piece:

Now, they're both the same, except the background. I did the background initially, then thought it looked a bit weird... then I liked it.... now I don't. Ugh. I'm bad at decision making when it comes to my own work :P

So I've just put both up. Off to post my link. Enjoy!

Ooooh, pirate car! Any yes, that dang pink ink is sometimes hard to scan. In person it reads great! :-)
