Illustration Friday - "Island"

  For this weeks topic of "Island" I went with the show Fantasy Island.  When I was a kid, every Saturday night after "The Love Boat" this kinda edgy show came on- Fantasy Island.  At the beginning of each episode this little guy named Tattoo would climb to the top of this tower, ring a bell and yell the words "Da Plane...Da Plane!"  For some reason Tattoo yelling that really bugged my dad- so we had to crank up the volume so he could hear it no matter where he was in the house:)  It was d0ne in Illustrator and Photoshop and took about 4 hours.
