I joined Monday Artday!

My interpretation of Automat by Edward Hopper

Not that I need more excuses to doodle and play around, but I recently joined the blog Monday Artday. It's similar in a way to Illustration Friday - you are given a challenge each week - but you here you have two weeks to complete it. And, unlike Illustration Friday, the challenges aren't always words. This week's challenge, for instance, was to remake a famous piece of art.

I've liked Edward Hopper for a long time - is it the melancholy? the existential big-city-ism? the colours? - so it was a lot of fun to recreate something in his style. And although I don't own anything quite like that beautiful cloche, I can sort of see myself in this one.
