Illustration Friday - Play



I just LOVE listening to music. Unfortunately I can't play any instruments. I remember taking trumpet lessons in fifth grade and my teacher kept telling me to press my lips together and blow harder which would usually result in me slowly sinking into my chair and getting a pain in my kidney from pushing air out of my tightened lips. Dizzy Gillespie made it look so easy....

Cool. The background in this piece is alive. There is so much activiy that the figures almost appear like statues, or fountains flooding the world with energy. Really nice.

Nice piece, I love the retro feel. Like how you made the trumpet player blue in the face (memories of 5th grade trumpet lessons maybe?)

Nicely done! Is that spit flying out of the wind instruments? :) I love all the colors and designs that went into this.
