Illustration Friday- Canned and Poof



What do you get when you combine the two words "canned" and "poof"? Well...a genie, I guess!? I spent some time while I was in Chicago looking at the stained glass museum on Navy Pier. I especially loved the art deco pieces, I'm always a sucker for Alphonse Mucha especially! I think that is what influenced parts of this illustration.
