I decided to create something based on (and in homage to) a song that I used to hear all the time as a child called "Open Up Your Heart (And Let the Sun Shine In) ":http://lyricsplayground.com/alpha/songs/o/openu... . We used to do “fitness” in gym glass in elementary school to the song. Don’t ask me how…we had a weird teacher.
This is what came to my mind with the lyrics “smilers never lose, and frowners never win” when it came to that song. It was also a little practice with different brushes in adobe illustrator cs3. You may also see the influence of a popular pen-and-paper game :D
