"Infinite"


I had some free time to doodle today, and I was in a type-drawing mood. So I checked out the Illustration Friday topic, which was "Infinite". Not surprisingly, the first thing that popped into my head was the infinity symbol. Perhaps it's cliched, but whatever.. I thought it would be fun to make an ornate infinity symbol wrapping around the word. I've also been in a red & black mood lately in my sketchbook, so that's what I went with..

UPDATE (9/26): Thank you, IF, for making my piece "Pick of the Week"!

I love your illustration. Surprisingly, I did not think of the infinity symbol until I saw someone use it in their illustration. I love the line work and the colors. Congrats on making it to the front page of IF.
