Illustration Friday - "Remember" Charles Schulz, 1922-2000
I am so busy with work right now, so I thought I would dig up something from the past since I probably won't have time to do new art for IF this week.. I actually did this illustration in an Illustration class at art school in 1989. We did not have computers to make art back then, so the lettering is hand drawn and painted on a vellum overlay.
Besides, it's good to remember the simpler times. I grew up on Snoopy and Peanuts cartoons, and I am pretty sure they inspired my art since I recall drawing a lot of Snoopies.. One of my cherished gifts from childhood was a Snoopy wrist watch, which I think I still own. It was the one with Snoopy holding a tennis racquet and the tennis ball travels around the face of the watch as the seconds tick by.
