Illustration Friday - Captain

Sailor

This was one of my first illustrations done in Adobe Illustrator when first came on the scene around 1994. I did this at Portfolio Center and the assignment was to simply do something with a nautical theme. This version of Illustrator did not have a brush tool and pressure sensitive tablets were not in the main stream yet. The wiggly shapes were created with the roughen filter I think. Since then, I lost the digital file and only had a IRIS print of it. So now it's an original with no digital file!

I love the colors and style of this illo. Has the feel of an old postcard or something.
