Illustration Friday: Contraption
This is an old illustration that I have posted before but I thought it would suit this weeks prompt of contraption. Her name is "Amphibious Me" and I created her last year. Amphibious Me comes with her own mode of aquatic transportation and safety helmet that takes her to mysterious connecting realms of sea and land. 

"Amphibious Me for Land and Sea"

    I love your surrealism. I love the title you have placed.
    and color, excellent!
    Could see more of this type of work yours?
    Is this asking too much?
    Good weekend for you.
    I do not remember if I said thank you for your visit.
    OK, Thanks for your visit, Miss Melissa Mackie!

  18. I'm behind on my blog visits - what gorgeous work you have in these last few posts that I've missed! "Ferocious" was fabulous, and I"m drooling over that wallpaper. This amphibious gal is wonderful - is it a large piece? Maybe it's the vertical lines in it, but I'm envisioning it as a huge wall-sized piece!

  19. Thank you for the feedback everyone. This was a piece I created for a packaging design assignment last year when I was studying. The last illustration is so long because it was designed to wrap around a box. It would look great as a wall size piece Sarah....
