I picked up my iPad the other day and began messing around in iDraw with the new stylus I bought. I was just goofing off when I drew a shape that was reminiscent of a bee and an idea took shape for an image. An image of a speedy bee. A SpeedBee, if you will.
So I kept working out the idea in iDraw and then did a major revision of it in Illustrator. I'm pretty happy with the result so far, although he needs some work -- I'm trying to convey cute, fat, and speedy all at once and the speedy part is suffering. I don't know why but trying to find the right intersection of fat and speedy just seems necessary for this image rather than dropping the speedy concept all together.
