For a while now I've wanted to participate in Illustration Friday
. Each week, a new topic is announced and anyone can submit an illustration on that theme. This past Friday's theme was "Disguise", with a further quote from Margaret Atwood: "Another belief of mine; that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise."

I went for a somewhat straightforward take on the quote, hoping that the absurdity of a literal interpretation would carry it. I also wanted to contrast the relaxed, confident pose of the clothing shell with a scared, overwhelmed expression. I envisioned it a little moodier, bordering on creepy, but my somewhat cartoonish drawing style works against that. Not sure how successful this one is, what do you think?
