Happy Weekend Inspiration Card 12

"A woman can never be too packed with shopping bags!". Laugh. Well that's kind of absurd, and not very deep. But hey it fit's with today's Illustration Friday theme "packed"! For all fashionistas out there, the stylish fashion blog www.almostpacked.com also inspired me to post this inspiration card for this week's Illustration Friday theme.

I created this illustration for German magazine LISA, to an article that was wondering if shopping is in a woman's genes. How superficial. Of ourse it's not. Right?

Laugh. Have a great, happy weekend everyone!

Great work! Nicely executed.

I agree with Scott - your work is never overworked - just right, always. And I love your vector lines but soft color variation in the cheek blush - really draws one into the face.

Shopping in our genes? I think it stems from women feeling empowered when they shop, but then I'm from an older generation...

How do you type a catcall whistle? She's beautiful, and I love the cheesecake pose. :) I'm all for retail therapy.

I've read that men like to shop, too, but their style is different. They have a target, they seek, obtain, and get out. Like hunting. Women like to forage. Anyway, that's just what I read....

hahah, Bella, thanks!
My boyfriend says exactly what you write - that he knows exactly what to buy before he buys it, then is in and out. Often even buys the same shoes over and over again if they fit well. Boy I'm different! As much as we don't like to be categorized, I have to admit there are some typical traits in men and women. Lol!

hehe...modern hunter gatherer behavior! Or something...

You are quite the knock out with those lines! Strategically simple and well balanced!
