Illustration Friday: Heavy

(click on image for a larger view)

Hello!

Yes, I'm still here! Just been a bit busy with work and travel (I have finally seen the Taj Mahal!!! :). More on that in a later post.) and ok, a lot lazy as far as Illo Fri is concerned but finally woke up tonight and realized I had something I could post for this week's topic 'Heavy'.

This illo was done around the last week of February for a humorous article in the March issue of HAIR magazine (India), about a Rapunzel-like girl with really long hair who's contemplating a major life-changing makeover. It's a perfect fit as far as I'm concerned cos' as anyone who has or has had long hair can tell you, those tresses can get heavy! (I actually had hair till my waist at one point of time and cried like a baby when I finally chopped it all off :D). The version of the illo that finally ended up in the magazine is a slightly different, simpler one, with much less detail. I'll post a picture when I get around to taking a good one.

Cheers,
Radha

Hey, great to see you back! I missed your wonderful work while you were gone. This is a very cool one. I know that feeling. Never had super long hair, but whenever I change my look I cry the first day, even if I end up liking it the first day.
