Illustration Friday: CAKE

*UPDATE - 05.29.06
Finished the promotional sign for the inside the shop. I feel like it's a little more complete this way.

completed illustration.

in context - postcard.

Irony saves the day...

It's been weeks since I've been able to get my act together enough to post something, let only a new something, especially a new something more complete than a rough sketch! Now at last I can post a finished illustration - thanks to the luck of the draw - no pun intended.

I do design work for a friend of mine with a coffee shop on a regular basis. This coming month is the shop's first anniversary, so the two of us came up with a birthday cake theme. The illustration will be used in several ways (Signs, Ads, promotional flyers, etc.) but the first thing she needed was a postcard to promote the celebration itself. Do you like?

What gets me is that I spent a good part of Friday evening completing this design - before I even looked at the IF theme this week. Too funny!!

I'll post the rest as I finish it. And if you like in the northern New Jersey area - don't forget to stop by!!
