Illustration Friday "Surrender"


Since chocolate cupcakes are one of my all time favorites (next to red velvet ones with butter cream icing) and since I've been trying to go gluten, dairy, rice and corn free and what other excuses can I come up with-- THIS is what I'd surrender to. Didn't even paint it from the real thing because then it would have been way too tempting.

The 'IF' favourite guilty pleasure to surrender to is chocolate, and I agree.

My contribution is similar to yours this week, although it may be a bad influence on you if you're trying to resist yummy cupcakes! :D

Illo Friday is such a cool thing. So universal. I'm thrilled to hear from so many different countries-- the UK, New Delhi, Portugal, to name a few. Thank all of you for your comments. I'm humbled.

Wonderful ... I will join you in trying to see only the image and not run for a chocolate covered, layered, filled, sprinkled upon with jimmies, cupcake.

Your cupcake looks so delicious that really I would surrender to it, too. And not only to chocolate cupcakes, but to any kind of chocolate as you can see in my post this week. There seem to be a lot of people who surrender to sweets.

I love this... I didn't do an illustration for "surrender" this week, but yours is perfect! Lovely execution of a wonderful idea.
