Pure Imagination

So there I was, listening to Maroon 5's version of "Pure Imagination" from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The one with Gene Wilder, not Johnny Depp. Anyways, I usually don't like when songs are redone by other people, but I really like this one.

I was listening to it, and then it struck again!!

The exact pose and style and colors, they all came to me at once! I sketched it out and brought it into Illustrator. It turned out pretty good I think, but I'm still a novice when it comes to doing drawings in Illustrator. I figured out some techniques and stuff. It really is fun working with vector art, I could work on this piece forever, but it's my birthday and I have other things to do.

"There is no- life I know- that compares to Pure Imagination"

Happy Birthday! Nico sent me :)

This is such a cute doodle and I agree with Nico, her name should be Winnie (Winifred) Wonka.

Have an awesome birthday!
