Ain't no party...

Today's Daily Pattern topic is LAMP...

... good one Francesca.

Part of the fun is finding an angle on the topic you can live with. This time I went through 3 iterations: I started with olde-timey lamps but I knew someone else would do that, so I kept thinking. I decided maybe Genie Lamps with big ol' clouds could be really cool. I started working on that, but wasn't having any fun.

So I grabbed my sketchbook and started drawing without thinking too hard. The first thing I drew was a lampshade. Then I drew a puking guy underneath and I knew I found my angle.

This one one of the most fun pieces I've done in a long time.

And here's the characters that aren't tossed all over the place.

I KNOW, I KNOW. Somebody with more creative brain power needs to pick the topics.
Or in the case of this sweet pattern, somebody with more creative brain power needs to make the patterns :).
