I got the “Illustration Friday” email and the word for the week is “silent”. My immediate imagery was dark, cold, middle of winter, full moon, no wind, leafless trees, blues & purples, ice crystals in the sky, stillness. Can you imagine the beautiful scene too? Well, I only had an hour, so maybe I’ll illustrate that another time.
Instead, I took a slightly different approach. I thought it might be funny to make a mouth silent. (Not sure where this was coming from. I am a mother of two…hmmm.) How though? I started doodling and I tied it. Um, can I say, “CREEPY!!?!?! and YUK.” I axed it. Okay, Sara, try a less-threatening approach.
Yes, it became obvious. Use a duck!
