Illustration Friday: Red

The night before their first meeting Horace emailed Mona: "You'll know me by the red carnation in my lapel."

Peace to you all, and may all your encounters be memorable.

I don't know, I might not trust the guy with that look in his eyes. Great work Twisselman--the red in this illustration is subtle and stands out in the more neutral tones. Hope you have an excellent weekend!

Princess Pepper Cloud said...

He looks pretty smug, like he's got the deal sealed. Great work!

Tony LaRocca said...

Horace seems quite the dastardly gentleman!

Don said...

Always love the style!

I hope his date goes well, or at the end of the night, he might look like Reginald.

'Love this! I've just caught up on your last few entries. Wow! I didn't realize you were such a great writer, too!

Horace is looking a little shifty to me. Maybe it's the turtleneck or the goatee? No...it's the eyes. I love your take on this, as always. And see, Janet loves your writing too! BTW, langorous is correct according to my roommate :)Thanks for the nice comments.

Clever take on this week's challenge! His expression says a lot - playful in a handsome way. Lovely piece.

I have five words for Mona, BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID.
I think red is his color, he is beautiful, I suspect his motives are not.
The strong red of the carnation against the grey of the suit, really makes this piece vibrant, and of course Horace looks to have ample amounts of vitality as well. Wonderful!

Nice take off on the word, as always. You have a nice flair for caricature.

I like the turtleneck and jacket. He reminds me of Sean Connery.
Great one again.

I love the illustration and the use of cropping but heh, I would run the other way if I saw him waiting1

Kaladda said...

Thanks for the nice comment! This guy looks like a smooth talker. I like the crop. Nice!

Sea Angel said...

I don't think I trust him, gives me the "player" vibe. Makes me feel like there's an evil grin waiting to come out anytime now. lol.

Great illo, I really like the texture in the goatee and the hair. Is very cool the the way the red stands out.
