My current obsession is crowds of characters. Is there anything that can draw you in like a mass of characters full of fun details? Did anyone else examine every inch of Where’s Waldo as a kid?
Here is the illustration I’ve been working on for the past few days:
Recently my illustration group pointed out the crowds in my new story and I realized that they are there as contrast to the main character, a book loving, timid, mousey… mouse. But aside from that they’re just fun to draw.
Here are a few more crowds that have caught my eye recently:
One of Ben Clanton‘s swarms of delightful characters.
Sophie Blackall‘s subway riding crowd.
Gyo Fujikawa‘s fairies from Come Follow Me.
