IF: Heroes

I’m wondering how many folks submitted the *Hero* sandwich for this week’s Illustration Friday? I’m guessing quite a few, as it’s not an inobvious concept for the topic, but I didn’t check out many links prior to doing this drawing, and of those I did see, none opted to do a sandwich. No matter, as there are a multitude of interpretations for the same concept, so it’ll be fun to see what everyone came up with!

    It was SO tempting to do this but I couldn’t have pulled it off like you have. Next time Envy comes up as an IlloFriday topic I’ll just link to your site.

    Love your style, well done.

    Delicious piece!…very tasty, indeed. And no, there were surprisingly few hero sandwiches.

    I’ve seen other heros lurking about the submission list, but this is truly a hero of heros. Super technique & style. And a killer sammich to boot.

    Thanks for dropping by, everybody. : ) I am surprised few hero sandwiches popped up, but thus far I spotted two others.

    Humblebee: I was just wondering if there was consistency to my style as I’ve got loose pieces mixed with tighter ones, etc. Super you recognized my stuff!

    Kudos Paula..I’d recognize your great stuff a mile away! I love this rendition…it’s playful and so well done. Subway should look to you for marketing ideas. Love it!

    It was very dangerous for me to see this post before heading out to the grocery store!!! (said Grocery Store is right next to a sandwich shop!!!)

    There is something about your style that IS instantly recognizable. First, there’s an ease in your drawing style…even in tighter drawings. And there is always a fresh dose of whimsy, color and class.
    Jeesh, why am I’m so hungry….

    Sorry to have set off the appetite meter for some of you, though. : )
