IF: Invention


I wanted to come up with some kind of fantastical invention, really! But after viewing some of the entries I was inspired to take it in another direction. So....Here I am as a contributor to Illustration Friday which I've "invented" images for. Thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments you've left regarding these previous images in my head.

  23. Great interpretation of this week's theme! It reminds me of that quote by Einstein, to the effect of "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

  24. Your illustration is nice. Because I'm weird, I never let myself look at other entries until I've posted my own.

  25. only years of experience will give you that confidence/experience to make art the way you do.

    art that is so sure of itself
