Illustration Friday - "Rambunctious"

  For this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Rambunctious" I was feeling kinda retro.   So I went with Mr. Daddy-O, hanging out in the lodge and slurping down some dirty martinis.  The more he drinks the more rambunctious he gets!  I also sent this image through the "Machine Wash" to give it a little texture.  I couldn't think of anything that exciting to use for text, so I just went with what this illustration is for.  It took about 3 hours and was done in Illustrator and PhotoShop.

Great retro quality with the linework, shapes, and faded colors; and the texture dirties it up just enough to make it perfect. :)

Great character and concept as always. Really like the faded 'machine wash' effect and the multiple legs. This would make a great poster.
