pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers

St. Patrick's Day is coming. Do you know how I know?

Not because I'm Irish. Because I'm not. I don't think.

Not because I have amazing plans, because I don't (unless you consider sitting home alone playing Super Smash Bros "having plans").

Not because a caught a Leprechaun. Yeah right, I wish.

Give up? It's because I did the St Patrick's Day themed illustration for this week's City Pages A-List!

look at this picture and then pretend you actually had a city pages sitting in front of you and you're casually flipping through it while sipping on a Latte at the alternative coffee shop of your choice... now you know what it's like to see it in person.

And below is the original file. As you can see, it's bright. I was trying to compensate for the newsprint washing the color out a little. So the newsprint one actually looks closer to what I had envisioned.

look, that guy is suspiciously Leprechaun-y. he's even carrying around a glowing pot o' gold. but at the same time, he's pretty normal. what's the deal with that guy?

It was a very tight deadline. I wish I could have had more time, but life's funny like that sometimes.

All in all, it was a good time. Or should I say, it was a "top o' the mornin' time?"

No. I probably shouldn't say that because it makes no sense.
