Illustration Friday: Speed



For Illustration Friday's "Speed" challenge I thought of a lot of things, races, cars, sports, etc. I also thought of it from a different view as "speed" as a drug. Then I thought what is the fastest thing I could think of? It would have to be email. The distance that email can travel in a few seconds still amazes me. I included my sketch also to show what I edited out in the final Illustrator rendering.

Great graphic. Email is so fast, almost too fast--you know, when you hit the "send" button, and get a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach. Oh no, I shouldn't have sent that! Speed kills.

Well, I suppose I am a bit on Robert McLaughlin's side about speed, I still think that radio waves are a miracle and thinking about how fast an e-mail reaches its destination makes my head so dizzy.
And, thanks for your kind comments on my post, I liked your entire blog, I'll keep track.
