Illustration Friday: Contagious

Mohawks have become quite CONTAGIOUS in my Kindergarten classroom! We're thinking of outlawing the hairstyle LOL :)

i find it really weird that a parent would let their 5 year old get a mohawk haircut. i cant believe that every parent out there finds that hairstyle appealing.

love the illo. great job!

Cute illo!!

Tracy: (Cool name, btw! Hee hee!) I agree with you TOTALLY! I hate the hairstyle! I can think of 6 JUST IN MY CLASS who have gotten that Mohawk cut this year! Crazy!

Alina: Thanks for your comment :)

it's all David Beckham's fault, he took it out of the punk realm and made it mainstream, great illustration, love the little moonstruck girl:)

oh... but i like mohawks... if you can carry it off that is... one senior of mine used to keep a different type of a mohawk every month... we were in awe of him... but that was most probably because he was a senior... :P

nice illo... btw... :D

Great illo, Tracy! There's so much going on, the teacher's expression is priceless!

I'm also not a fan of mohawk haircuts in little kids, it looks so odd! :-)

Oh this is a fun one and too funny that you took it from real life! I think jannie is on too something!

I'm not really a fan of 5 year olds with mohawks, either. Kinda strange!! But very cute illo!!

Cute contagion!

I gave my son a mohawk last summer (when he was 7) at his request. He thought he was being so original until we showed up at a neighborhood BBQ and he was one of 3 boys his age with one! They'll have to come up with something else when they are teenagers :)

Very nice illo!

This is really, really cute- love the colors and the subtle texture. It is so good to see more of your work-- this really made my day. I'm sure you're counting the days until school is out... I know my kids' teachers are. :)

Hi Tracy! Its so good to see you here back in blog land again posting some great illos. All of these characters are so special- their expressions and their gestures really tell a great story!!!

Art Fan Ako said...

Kindergarten should give you lots of ideas to illustrate! Kindergarten punk rockers... they get younger each year. LOL

Daniel Chaffin said...

Great set of characters. Do the girls in your class like the boys' mohawks?

Tracy said...

Thanks everyone :) I appreciate your comments!
Daniel: You know, I haven't noticed my girls going "ga-ga" over the boys' hairstyles. I hope this is a trend that fades fast, though :)
