Illustration Friday - Smitten



Darlene was the first to notice the tall handsome foreigner. He never spoke to anyone. Darlene assumed that it was because he was from tropical island and didn't speak English. The drakes all thought the guy was a phony but, never the less, the ladies all flocked to him.

This piece is dedicated to the Union Products company. Union Products is the original manufacturer of the pink plastic flamingo. Sadly they are closing their doors for good on November 1st of this year.

Oh No... no more pink flamingos!
So even if he is a phony flamingo, his aura drew the ladies in. Wonderful work! I love the illustration and really enjoyed the humor!

Thanks, this is done in Photoshop. The good news is they are looking for a new owner for the flamingo factory.
