Ergophobia

I wanted to use an unknown word, and went digging in old english.  I found ergophobia and instantly knew, this is my new favorite word.  

Ergophobia:  The morbid fear of returning to work

Here are my initial sketches

I did have a bit of trouble with the merge tool, and I liked how this turned out.  I may explore more with other words.

Anyway, I guess it's time to get over my ergophobia.

[Updated] I came back and edited this a bit.  I went through and made the transition pieces a bit less harsh and adjusted the background.

I liked it so much that I ordered a mousepad off of Zazzle.

It's a constant reminder to get back to work.  :)
