Citrus - IF




I love citrus. It's one of those foods that really quenches my thirst. Plus, I like to cook with lime and it's so tasty in a gin and tonic and mojito ;)

This is an Illustrator piece I created in response to the weekly challenge at Illustration Friday. This week's topic is "Citrus".

I see we've both posted early today! I love the large format playfulness of these fruits. The bold lines give it an added 'zip!' And you made my mouth water talking about cooking with lime. Have a wonderful, gentle weekend!

I just had my first mojito the other day...very yummy. :) I think it was mango flavored.

This is a great picture. I like lemon in my water, very simple but does the trick.

Really like the contrast in line weight and strong colors.
