Illustration Friday - CLIQUE

”Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" (1994)

Illustration Friday - Memories

My dad loved to fish. Afterwards my mom would always take a picture of him with his catch and ultimately with one of us kids by his side. In this photo it was with me. 
And as always, we had to be in the sun so we could be "seen" so she could get a "good clear picture", but in the process, we squinted...

This is from an old Polaroid photo, only 2"x2.5"in size. It was actually taken with the original ”Swinger”
Polaroid camera of the 60's my dad bought on a whim.
I scanned it, enlarged it to 8x10, printed it out, painted it with gouache, re-scanned it, then altered it a bit in Photoshop, and back and forth.

Needless to say, I had a bit of fun while re-living the memories...
