The right equipment for Illustration Friday

To be honest, when the Illustration Friday prompt came this morning I wasn’t exactly running for my brushes filled with inspired bliss. “Equipment” brought images of tractors, backhoes and other heavy machinery…technical, mechanical kind of stuff that didn’t speak to me. However, I was determined to participate. So I looked “equipment” up in the dictionary rather than settle for my preconceived, stifling notions. Definition #2 felt more comfortable:
2, that which equips; supplies; gear.

After finding a way to relate, I illustrated my type of equipment as seen above.

That’s what I love about Illustration Friday. A common word is able to produce a wide range of inspiration and images.

And yes, if you’re wondering, I do think heavy construction equipment would be happier with more color and of course glitter. Just my thoughts.

  6. I absolutely agree, why don't they make tractors, lawnmowers, etc. in hot pink and glitter? It sure would make things more interesting. :) Of course I think buildings and houses should be more colorful and exciting too. Glitter and color makes the world a happier place!

    Anyway, I'm really loving this new piece, and I love how you sewed the buttons on and all the 3D embellishments. such a creative use of the word "equipment". Awesome work!
