Flowers & advertising

ive been working as an illustrator in an advertising company the last 2 months, over 100 storyboard frames and dozens of little illustrations. last week i got the chance to create an billboard illustration for a chain clothes outlet but as things are starting to shape up i notice that Greece has very limited respect for any sort of art and no one wants to buy an idea with concept and if is has anything to do with comics or illustration then you can forget it.
all they want is the plain, "this is my product, it is good, buy it!" bleh!

anyway this is the illustration i pitched and got rejected :( dang it

sketcha3 pencils
coloursas much as i like it now this is not the final image, when i find some time i plan to finish it but without the adverting parts :)
