Illustration Friday - "Fail"

  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Fail" I was inspired by some old school retro animation stills I saw online.  I think this is kinda like a self portrait- well, at least the grade is- maybe the nose too?  It was done in illustrator and photoshop and I used one of those cool filters (on the background) I have on the Machine Wash disk.  It took about 3 hours.

Hi Scott

I have a real fondness for cartoons from the fifties and sixties but never had the nerve to try that style. With guys like you doing quality work like this I now know why. Very well done and congrats on capturing a moment of cartoon nostalgia.
