"Hierarchy" - Illustration Friday theme


This is my first entry to Illustration Friday.com - the theme this week is the word "Hierarchy". In sketching my first ideas, I thought it would be cute to have a bunch of birds on a tree, with one bird at the top in a very boastful "I'm the king" kind of pose. I sketched  and then decided to try something different (as my little birds weren't looking so great)...so after thinking a bit, I thought of hierarchy in a different way...

although the animals on the side of the bed are "smiling", there is a hierarchy to my daughter's oodles of stuffed animals. Only one, or maybe two favorite animals will ever be right next to her with her arm snuggled around it. So, that's my take on hierarchy. : )

  8. Great first entry!!! I love the colours and the look on the little girl's face!!! It reminds me of when I was a kid, I'd end up squashed to one side of the bed with a mountain of teddies and dolls! Well done and I look forward to seeing what you come up with next week!
