Barkles 503 Page

This is a commissioned illustration I did for a new social networking company called Barkles. It's a place to share your opinions and get rewarded. The site is launching soon and this illustration is for their 503 error page. It's the page that tells the user that the web site's server is simply not available at the moment. This is usually due to a temporary overloading or maintenance of the server. So their idea was to have their mascot tearing the page to expose the server. They were pleased with the final, as was I. And since this had me busy I decided to also submit it for my Illustration Friday drawing for this week. A little double-duty here. The word this week is "layer". Barkles is pulling back a layer.
