Ken Orvidas

While looking through the New York Times site today, an illustration caught my attention by a one Ken Orvidas. I went to his site and he has an impressive array of work. What strikes me the most, is thinking behind the illustrations, but his style is impressive as well, great use of textures. You can see more of his work here or check out his blog.

Illustration Friday: Slither

Harold contemplated his monotone life as he stared at the fallen Skittles, just sitting there waiting to be devoured.

I heard a rumor that if you combine Skittles with snails and/or slugs they will change colors. Probably just a rumor. At any rate the word for the week reminded of that.

I decided for a wedding present I'd make something instead of buying, so I made this. It comes from the quote "out of small things proceedeth that which is great."
