Recently illustrated

This is an illustration ran in my hometown newspaper a few weeks ago. I can't remember what the story was about. Had something to do with people and friendships and isolation and how we maintain friendships differently in the age of technology. Make sense?

Anyway, I wanted to do something figurative and experiment with split complementary color schemes — in this case, yellow and violet. I also threw in a bit of green. When I work, I also look for humorous opportunities.

Well, you missed one humorous opportunity. Where are the nipples!?!?

I'm always amazed when artists know how to use color schemes, name them and all! I have never, NEVER been able to digest color theory or color scheme information, hard as I have tried! I don't know why. I think it means I can't communicate on a certain level about the quilts I make...sigh...
