A box...

























...that sometimes confines and suffocates my creativity.
My take on this week’s Illustration Friday theme “Confined”.
Apparently, my creativity is also confined to dancing badly! Can you spot my silly mistake? (the revised version is below)
I hope you're all having a great start to the new year!

...et voilà!
A little photoshopping has solved the problem.

man - that is a great illustration - great take on the theme and well developed - makes one really want to get out of that box you have painted!

It's the left foot!! The toes are backwards, right!? It still looks great, though!

Great concept!! OK, so he's a lousy dancer. Love the FEAR as well!

I feel confined just looking at it. Great.

You've captured that creative claustrophobia so perfectly! And it's good to see you back online & posting! I almost think the two left feet should be left in, since they suggest the stumbling awkward feeling of an uncreative period...
