Music

frog_quartet_small.jpg
This is a piece I did for a very good friend who plays violin for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. She runs an amazing summer chamber music program for very talented high-school kids in Atlanta called Franklin Pond Chamber Music. The group meets at her home, which is actually on a pond that is a frog haven, so the frog quartet was a natural theme. It was done entirely in Photoshop, aside from the instruments which I photographed and composited in to the artwork.

terribly realistic AND cartoony enough to be believable! Great illustration!
