Illustration Friday: Reflection

For the past few days, I've been wracking my brains as to how to illustrate the current theme. I actually thought of taking a raincheck for this week. I thought of having the point of view of a mirror where a zit is being popped. Gross! Then I thought of doing a pond scene. But that was common. Early this afternoon, I was just sitting behind my desk and simply looked to my left. There it was, my illustration! Very simple. Teehee!

I used three graphics application here. I designed the frame of my glass in Adobe Illustrator. Created the PowerBook text also in it. Switched directly to Dogwaffle to create the texture of my laptop sleeve. I'm impressed by the results. Then lastly, I went to Adobe Photoshop to create the yellow lens, plus, the reflection at the bottom.

Whenever I wear my yellow glasses, it brightens up my day. It literally gives me a BRIGHTER perspective.

Lovely! I had the same problem this week and almost didn't do one. I love how the simplest ideas can turn out to be the best!
