IF - Surveillance

Because nothing says stealthy surveillance like people with audio recording equipment! When I read the word "Surveillance" on Illustration Friday for this week's theme, the first thing that popped into my head was the various lessons on sneaky audio recording techniques that were taught in an audio class that I took. In my opinion, no matter how you do it you look incredibly suspicious to random civilians, but that doesn't stop students with a zoom kit from trying to be ninjas. :)

I did this one in watercolor, just for kicks. Unfortunately my scanner decided to put a layer of blue over everything, so even after some color correction, the colors still look pretty bizarre.

And for those wondering about the lull in uploads, I am currently computerless (due to no space to set up my computer). So for now, uploads will be slow.


  1. very cute piece, looks like you had some fun with the prompt. not sure if it was intended but it also illustrates how public everything is these days, cell phone cameras, youtube, facebook... i'm kinda glad i grew up in the days before all that.

    1. You're right, I did have fun with the prompt! I've always been a bit disturbed by how intent our society is on documenting every little thing for everyone to see, and I think this ended up reflecting that feeling. Though I think zoom kits make stealthy recording rather difficult. :)

  2. Nice coloring and poses it's very fun.
