This lighthearted illustration of a pencil taking off like a spaceship is a great gift for illustrators, authors, artists, or any creative type. I came up with the idea for this design while brainstorming for a book-related illustration. The mighty pencil (or pen, marker, chalk, whatever you prefer) represents the creative impulse, the need to push upwards with all our creative strength. In the illustration, this creative tool is the focal point, with a strong, upwards thrust. The big clouds of smoke coming out of the impulse create a more horizontal, balanced composition. The final artwork is very simple to understand, and looks great on a wide variety of products. If you're hard pressed looking for a cool, creative gift for yourself or a maker you know, this will work wonderfully well.
