Illustration Friday - "Blanket"

This week my first thought was Linus (the kid with the security blanket) from Peanuts by Schulz. I always loved his art, not sure I ever understood the jokes though...



I always get the impression that security blankets are encrusted with snot and who knows what else... also, just try to take it away for washing and the screaming starts!

This was another quick digital sketch, about half an hour again, I think.
