The kids look oblivious. That's the way to go, eh? Lots of nice textures to admire as well as mighty strong colors! Looks great, John!

They don't look at all concerned! I, on the other hand, look utterly delighted and joyful! I'm certain I have this illustration to thank for that. :)

The octopus seems a bit annoyed that he's not able to scare them. Great illo!

Leah said...

Brilliant! I love the bright colors as well as the kids' and octopus's facial expressions :).

the kids look so happen they are being attacked by the octopus. Or maybe they are just playing a game? great illo as always.

gorrrgeous color, john! so bright and cheery...hard to see their danger unless they are just blissfully stupid. :)))

AMAZING! I love the colors!

John, I say this very seriously, as a serious artist.. this is the funest emergency ever!

I like it in both it's up-ways, and down-ways formats.

very cool illustration. Reminds me of the college days getting stoned watching yellow submarine and trying to decipher its secrets.

Dudley Redhead said...

It's out there. It's cool - particularly the idea of Octopus eyebrows (poetic in its own right)..
great textures. thanks for visiting me too.

Doug said...

Well... I was gonna say I like the bright color in this and the textures... but everyone beat me to it.

nice job!

I like the first view better and I agree with the confusioin over the children's expressions. It's a great piece and full of fun.

They look like they're being tickled. The real emergency may be that they giggle themselves silly!

JC said...
