Illustration Friday: Might
For some reason when I heard the theme was "might," the first thing I thought of was how you always hear how ants can lift 10 times their body weight. In my quick internets research, I found out ants strength is overstated, but I already had my idea.
I wanted to experiment with limited color here. I was inspired by some colors in an old 60s letter/bill holder that I have. I also was inspired by some old cookbooks I have, that use just black and one color. I like how they use the solid color to describe the shapes, and then use interior black for details.
Here is a pic of the bill holder that inspired the color. Click it for the larger size and some other close-ups on my flickr too:
