Illustration Friday 030207 : Hide

Click here for a larger - though no less busy - version

Agatha always said that her time in the Territorial Army had taught her a thing or two about effective camouflage.

This reminds me of our house when we moved in umpteen years ago - decked head to toe in Laura Ashley floral. Initially, money was a bit tight, so it took a very long time to get rid of it all...

I am kind of amazed by this. Great work. I would love to know how you did it.

Hi Ammon-

Thanks. This was done in Illustrator, and it was much easier than you'd think - all I did was create swatches (one for the shirt and another for everything else) using one of Illustrator's own flower symbols placed on a colored background. Then the swatches are used as fills. (Everything automatically joins up, despite bits of the sofa and curtains being on many different layers.)
