Groovy

Hey all
So here is a drawing I recently did for a friends birthday. It's a portrait of her and her family as if they were from the 1960's. It's very fitting because they practically are from the 60's. They love all things hip and cool, Danish furniture, vinyl, mid-century everything. I tried to draw them in a retro stylized way to enhance the concept.
The image isn't super high rez though, but you get the idea. It is done in the same style as one of my picture books I've written and illustrated, The Teleportation of Gil Perez. Here are a few images from that book:


As always if you have any input on the images, I'd love to hear it!
