IF: Packed with flies

Here's my entry for Illustration Friday. This frog is packed with flies. The ink drawing is not my own original idea. I like to practice my line work by attempting to copy the works of famous artist. This illustration is by Robert Lawson 1892-1957. To learn more about this artist visit www.bpib.com/illustrat/lawson.htm Click on the illo for a closer look. Don't be too harsh on me remember I said "attempted."

Terrific! Frogtastic... *urp*... I love the illustrative style of the late 19th early 20th century... Milo Winter is my favorite of that time period. You did a great job capturing the look
