This illustration is for the editorial "The Binge From Hell and Back," a delightful tale from Oprah about a person who buys a ton of apple fritters and binges. My concept was to make the person look like an apple fritter and it looks like I succeeded in creating a character that looks a little like the bee girl from that Blind Melon music video. I don't have a full grasp on acrylic yet, and I am not sure that I prefer it much over gouache as I can not mix colors spontaneously or create lines as easily.
