Subway Illustration

As the kids are not in school for the next few days and there will be no lunches to pack, I thought I would post something else.  While not a napkin, it does feature many of the same sorts of characters.  This is a practice illustration that I worked on last year, mostly to try to teach myself how to paint using photoshop.

The long, narrow format is based on the "Art Cards" done by various illustrators and produced by the New York MTA.  When the kids were younger and we took the train to school every day, we spent a lot of time discussing them.

In this case, it is a subway car full of fictional characters, mostly appealing to children.

From left to right, including, but not comprehensively:
Dumbledore, Chingachgook (Last of the Mohicans), Dorothy, Wicked Witch, Ulhura, Spider Man, Sherlock Holmes, Red Riding Hood, Jeannie (I Dream of), Annie Oakley like woman in western gear, Steve from Blue’s Clues, Xena, Super Man, Han Solo, Peter Pan, Wonder Woman, The Man with the Yellow Hat and Curious George’s foot, Captain Rex, Count of Monte Cristo, Scout, the Seventh Samurai, Indiana Jones, Hermione, The Scarecrow, Alice, Sleeping Beauty, Pippi Longstocking, Cat Woman, Ahab, Captain America, Princess Leia, Mario, the Mummy, Christopher Robin, Robin, Mace Windu, The Tin Man, Tia (Princess and the Frog), Storm... and others too partial to mention.
