2009. Here’s a rundown of the process of making this illustration.
1) Pencil drawing. Scanned into Photoshop and turned from gray to blue.
2) Watercolor on printer paper. Not idle for watercolor so you get lots of cramps in the paper, which makes it look a bit more interesting perhaps. There’s more than a bit of color manipulation. I had to save the lousy scan somehow.
3) Putting both scans together, creating the final piece. Done.
