I think the little orange guy is going to win them over with his charm, don't you think? Such great fishy characters, and the colors are divine! Your work is always so top-tier!

Katie said...

I hope that clique of fish are vegans. Very nice illustration. Very colorful and clever.

Joanie said...

This is so cute!

I support the little likeable fish ;-)

Kelly B. said...

Eric, this is super cute! Love it!

Roberta said...

That little guy has some big aspirations if he's going to try to swim with the big fish!
You never cease to amaze me with your clever ideas and excellent execution!

And thanks for all your kind comments Eric. Houston is slowly returning to normal.

Mônica said...

Oh, I love this... a more positive take on the theme!

That adorable orange fish has such a winning expression, I think he's going to break that clique and enlighten the others about accepting everyone. :-)

Great work, as always: great colors, great lines, great composition!

Kelly Light said...

It's so rough in school - isn't it? Finding out where you fit in is like swimming up stream. Some kids become your friend for fishy reasons...

This is great as usual!

Tracy said...

Wow this is gorgeous! I love the texture of the water. That little orange guy is adorable! Hopefully he doesn't feel the need to be "clique-y" :)

Random York said...

I really admire your work Eric! It is cartoonlike ,but it is also has a dreamlike quality-

André said...

Great style you got here! I really like your use of color, soft textures and simple shapes.

Nicky Linzey said...

Great illustration for the theme although I am a little frightened for the goldfish!

yoon see said...

Great job!
The small almigthy orange fish simply has its electrifying charm.
(Friendly and welcoming as for sure)
Love the orange against the monotoneous light blue background.
Excellent colour co-ordination.

Paola said...

hehe! that little guy has the right attitude, he won't be so easily intimidated :)
I love your palette and textures, amazing work!
