Illustration Friday - "Strings"

  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Strings" I went with the phrase "Look mom, no strings!".  I love the show Heroes and have been wanting to illustrate the cheerleader (Claire Bennet) for a while.  (Save the cheerleader, save the world!)  In this image Claire finds out her new guy friend has the power of flight and takes her for a ride around town.  I don't know where the expression "Look mom, no strings" came from, but that's what inspired this illustration (he can fly without strings).  It took about 6 hours, 3 slices of pizza, and a Pepsi:)
