Illustration Friday - Chair

Originally done for our New Years Eve party invitation way back in the late 1990's. It was a collaborative effort between my old roommate/illustrator/friend John Nelson. John did the tight pencil I did the final. Final is digital over an oil painting, 7" x 9" at 300 dpi.
The concept was to show the news years baby back to his old ways and not keeping any of his new years resolutions. I thought it was a good choice for the chair theme since it takes up most of the image and it's where the baby gives in to all his vices. How are you doing with your new years resolutions? I don't make resolutions at New Years I make them all through out the year.

Chap in a hat in a chair - I can relate to that! Love the colours you've used.

Resolutions - well I'm keeping one out of five so far... but the others still have a chance... I knew better than to expect them to kick in straight away!

He's back to smoking and thumb-sucking--poor kid. Great illo.

So far I am 100% with with one resolution and about 60% with another. Not too shabby.

Hugely fun. I think I attended that party because I sure do remember that chair.
