Illustration Friday: "Forgotten"

Forgotten? Hey! How about for starters where are the heck are you? The infant on the left is floating in sea of emptiness like... so many bodies of water... with no fish in them.

The confidant child on the right is walking proudly, supreme ruler of his space. Because he actually has space. And dimension. And stuff on the floor.

This is for the second of three animated commercials for a hospital I've been doing at work. I did this first one with out any stuff, just ... well ... did I forget? No, and that's the bad part. Somehow I thought it was going to look good. Well it didn't. Now I can say I forgot. But I'm not sure that sounds any better, really.

So I made some stuff for baby to have around him. Disaster averted.

If I come across any more "forgotten" type things during the day I'll update this post. Have a good Friday. Think of Frīge, wife of Odin.

The name Friday comes from the
Old English frigedæg, meaning the day of Frige the Anglo-Saxon form of Frigg, a West Germanic translation of Latin dies Veneris, "day (of the planet) Venus." However, in most Germanic languages the day is named after Freyja—such as Frīatag in Old High German, Freitag in Modern German, Freyjudagr in Old Norse,Föstudagur in Icelandic, Vrijdag in Dutch, Fredag in Swedish, Norwegian, and Danish—but Freyja and Frigg are frequently identified with each other.

Thanks wiki.

Cute little guy! I must admit, I'm guilty of drawing people who just float in nothingness. Oops. Thanks for the lesson on Frige!
