IF: Signs

"Signs your fish may be in trouble."

When I was thinking of an illustration for this theme, I was looking at store signs and actually drove by a strip mall that had 3 stores: "Boxes to Go", followed by a pastry shop and then an actual casket store. I had a million questions: Since when do you see a casket store in a strip mall? Is the pastry shop/casket combo some sort of sign in itself? And aren't caskets really "boxes to go" anyway? Lots of grim visuals, so I guess that's why I came up with a dead fish this week. (Hmmm. Last week the fish was in the lemonade, so I suppose this is a sequel. hee hee) I promise he won't be around next week - unless the theme is "flush". :)

That's very funny. Hopefully some fresh water can help revive our little friend.
You are very good with Illustrator! I took a 10 week class on Adobe Illustrator not long ago, and that was not easy. I feel more comfortable drawing by hand, and it's hard sometimes finding the time to practice with the software, but I do appreciate digital illos. Great work!
