IllustrationFriday: Opposites

“Opposites!”

This sort of sighting is not unusual in our house. Our daughter has a couple dinosaur toys and enjoys them a lot. It almost looks funny to see this sweet little curleysue bringing along ugly, pokey dinosaurs to the store, but what is funnier is when I find a dinosaur mingled with her other feminine toys--the inspiration to this illustration.

Here’s a real picture of a scene she made with her dinosaurs one day--they're taking over the playground:

One really fun part of designing this illustration was the subtle design in the background color—here is a close-up: It has dinosaur-ish symbols on the doll’s side and girl-ish symbols on the dinosaur’s side!

Just for a laugh, here are more arrangements of toys I have discovered my daughter has left behind after she cleverly played with them, as she was between only 1 and ahalf to 2 yearsold: the one above was accidentally amusing: it looked like her pig pigged-out and then decided to lay down. (there's a cat in the bottomleft, just trying to nap in his bed)
