London 2012 Olympics...Deuced!
|Apparently the antioxidant Catechin (which is found in green tea), stops an enzyme in the Olympic drug tests from detecting testosterone. (Congratulations to Alex Shipley for guessing correctly, a caricature is on it's way to you!) This illustration was actually a bit of a grind! As much as i like having the various nationalities, I'm not sure if i could have accomplished the same idea without breaking away from my usual square-framed, canvas. i find this one a little bit out of proportion too; the girls seem a bit squashed, and the signs a bit lost! ...Then again, maybe I'm worrying about nothing!? I'll probably feel totally different about it in the morning, and think i like the direction in the piece, and that there's contrast between the cluttered, bottom-half and the spacious top-half. i might say i like that the Olympic colours echo through the outfits too...hey...I'm actually starting to like this!! well done, me!|
