Illustration Friday: Gravity


The others were concerned that Melville did not fully grasp the gravity of the situation.


Peace, and let's not be too hard on those who try to lighten up a bit.

Yes, Melville is clueless; as I seem to be much of the time at work. Pretty funny.

HARDWAX said...

Melville may be clueless, but he definitely has advantage in the happiness department.
What a fun take on 'gravity', LOL, and love the artwork, especially the expression of disdain on the worker bee in the middle, too good!

Diane Duda said...

yes, naive but happy! great characters!

steve said...

Hey, excellent take on the subject! Melville's the man.

mrana said...

great illustration ... the expressions on their faces are priceless.

studio lolo said...

The memo I got said it was "casual Illustration Friday." Those two need to lighten up! Man, you nailed the expressions! I do believe this is one of the best this week. Love it!

Linda said...

Melville dos/nt seem to be bothered at all, he's in happy land. Great characters!

Michelle Lana said...

hehehe...awesome characters!

Jayster said...

Brilliant. Love all the characters, but I really identify with the happy chap!

I wish I was a moron
He doesn't give a damn
I'd love to be a moron
My God! perhaps I am.

This is great. Those expressions are so true.

snicker ;-] We all should express ourselves once in a while. Nice piece!

Larry Lee said...

Love the expressions. They look like they might be natives of Easter Island. Great work!

carla said...

Good for Melville! I am predicting that his life expectancy is a lot longer than that of the other grave (ahem) fellows. Party on dude! Life is mysterious; don't take it serious!

Great characters!

scribblesk said...

Melville has the right idea! Those other guys definately need to lighten up! Fetching!

Tony LaRocca said...

Go, Mellville!

Regina said...

Melville is the only one that know what's goin' on!

This piece really makes me smile! Well done.

georg said...

I would say, that Melville is the creative man, and the two other men are copies.

But I think the most important is, that Melville is a happy man!

Great image!

He's on another planet.

Just saying hey, hoping things are OK, and that rhymes.
