IF Save

Here we go for this week's Illustration Friday. I translate "Sauve qui peut" as "Run for your life", but a literal translation could be "Save yourself if you can" ... Oh and I tried to give it a little bit of a sepia tone to honour A Sepia Colored Photo, the illustrator who suggested the theme!



and here is the sketch where it all started ...

I like this quite a bit. The hammer is particularly nice. I actually prefer the more rough-hewn hammer in the initial sketch. Both are good, but the face on the sketched one just looks a little more menacing in a shark-type way to me. Also, the looseness of the sketch seems to add to the feeling of present danger. Either way, I like it!

Very funny!

Thanks for all the comments! I've been thinking that maybe I should have labeled the hammer (materialism or consumerism, or maybe even greed), but I guess it works without it being labeled.

Very funny and witty. I love pork in the center that looks the hammer resigned.
Sorry for the brutal English :)

Those poor little piggies, nobody loves them! Ah, but it's not so easy to save! Great illo! I like the use of the hammer, that gives the illustration a whole other depth.
