Illustration Friday: “Swamp”

An excuse to draw an alligator…who tends to live in a swamp. This one’s having a hard time getting a phone signal. You know how swamps can be.

    This poor guy doesn’t even know that there’s no towers in the Everglades… Great expression on his face, that look of no signal frustration that we all have sometimes. Nice job!

    Hi Phil! Thanks for the comment! I guess your being from a swampy state, you’d know about such things. I hadn’t even thought about the cell tower not being around myself.

    Thank you, Rico! Yes, it’s a challenge to draw loose!

    Awesome use of line and colour. Love shadow tint and the smoke over the head.

    Hi Paula–very fun gator! I am forwarding this to my sister (the one in the canoe) as she use to work for Verizon. : )

    Even alligators deal with this, huh?! Great illustration!
