Illustration Friday: Obsession

Illustration Friday illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

It’s an old student piece from my RISD days for this week’s Illustration Friday submission! It was created for an editorial illustration class and we were given articles on obsessions. This was the first in a triptych about late night binge-eating disorders. There was obsession with food (shown), overindulging, then feeling remorse. I haven’t seen this piece in a long time and it’s woefully apparent why I only made a B+ in that class.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

You've got the haunted look just right! B+ is jolly good, by the way.

Hehehehe, I am in the same boat, I tend to go a little overboard with the indulging and then I obsess about how to get rid of the calories consumed. Ah well. I think this is a really nice piece and for a student work this is great!

At first I didn't know it was a donut (but being in Rhode Island I should have!!) It's actually a great concept. I think your teacher was hard on you.

Love the donut. It made me think of Half-Moon Cookies which I think about whenever I catch a glimpse of a half moon. B+ is still good and I like this one.

Hey Christina! Thanks for breaking out the “old” stuff! You should have gotten an A+. Hope your throat is feeling better. God bless.
