Illustration Friday: Afterwards and Day 8 of AEDM,PiBoIdMo, NaNoWriMo

Good Monday morning everybody!  This is my entry for Illustration Friday where the theme is afterwards.  I actually had to really think about this one, at first nothing came to mind and then somehow the little illustration comic like thingy came to me.
It is also day 8 of the challeneges in which I am partaking: AEDM, PiBoIdMo and NanoWriMo.  I call the above illustration/idea The Gold Thieves and it follows the adventures of Frank the Unicorn and Meghan the bear after they steal the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and of course many crazy things ensue cuz you really should just leave the gold there at the end of the rainbow.  I haven't gotten that far with NaNoWriMo, but now I'm really inspired cuz I got a good graphic novel idea, the story I was working on can wait for now.  I have too many ideas in my brain!
Oh, and as a side note, I've said this before, but I can't draw a straight line for nothing, thus my jalopy rectangular boxes.  I coulda made it look neater by using the rectangle tool, but I didn't want to.

  3. I like the "jalopy rectangular boxes" ~ both the drawing and the description. The word suits the description here, and the frames just add to your sweet characters.

  5. Cool idea to do a sequential story for IF! I also like the irregular boxes, & the occasional overlap on the coloring... both suit your style very well.

    p.s. I can't imagine taking on that many challenges at once, very impressive!
