"Contagious" illustration friday


Well I've finished with the children's book competition illustrations. I won't tempt fate and post anything just yet, in the vain hope I might get through to the second round... ... To get the blog rolling once again illustration friday is always a good motivator. This weeks is "contagious". I could just post my "swine flu" in the previous post but that's not really playing the IF game now is it... :) Something quick and graphical I think to compliment the funny porker.

Loved it!
Cheers!
