Strange Behavior (Illustration) Entry: Annie Stegg


Anyone from Stoneybrook elementary will tell you that Philip Burges had the biggest imagination in the whole fourth grade. It almost seemed odd that someone so small could be capable of possessing anything in magnitude. He once came to class with a can of shaving cream, which he would periodically spray in a counterclockwise circle around his desk. He said it was to ward off the playground succubus. Another time he wore his mother’s oven mittens on the playground during dodge ball, claiming that he needed it to keep him from receiving the horrible hives that sports gave him. So, needless to say, no one believed him when he said he was going to bring his pet dinosaur to school for show and tell on Wednesday

Here is my final image! Thanks everyone so much for your critiques and feedback!

Haha- thanks so much Fernando! I really had a lot of fun with this painting. It was a challenge to do something that does not encompass my regular theme or style. You were one of the people that was there right from the beginning, and I most definetely appreciate it! Thanks!

Well, I don’t know how I missed the email auto-message from CGTalk but, now that I have seen the final image (though quite late), I think it’s AWESOME! Great job with this piece Annie! Congrates. Love the kids and the Trex. The comp and dynamics have a very nice flow. I love details and that’s well represented in your painting.
