Illustration Friday - Entangled

Working on a project for my wife's uncle, I discovered a technique I really liked; so I thought I'd try using it again. The design here needs some tweaking (I think all the letters should be off kilter, for example), but I still really like it.

Hey Sam! I like this style/technique -- looks great, fun, inviting. Nice use of the challenge word, too!

I love the web!

Great technique. I agree with your thoughts on the letters. The graphic is very whimsical and organic - the lettering is very tight.

Hi Sam, i've only been here about 5 minutes and i'm glued. great blog of so many different mediums and styles used, just amazing. love your spider in the web, but he kinda scares me too because those uncoordinated types always end up falling on your head. yikes! another that stands out for me is the pumpkin reading the pumpkin carving horror story. so funny! and the colours and lighting effects are terrific.

Nice texture and technique. If the design is bothering you I would suggest putting the authors name in the bottom right corner; it would help with the balance.

I really like it. I agree with you about the letters being off kilter...and I agree with the comment above me on balancing it with your name in the bottom right corner. But I'm loving the spider and the webs everywhere and even the background. Very cool.

Great comments about the design, guys. I'll be honest, I didn't spend much time on the type, and it shows. But I wanted to get something out before the next Illustration Friday prompt.

I love this one! I like how 'Trevor' looks like it was tied in place by the web. Poor guy, it must be a hard life, being an uncoordinated spider!

That web is perfect. This is the most original depiction of a spider and its web I've seen. Great work!
