Hello again! And thank you very much to those of you who have been supporting my work throughout Inktober – and before! It means a lot to me.
With Thought Bubble coming up (a rather important comic con in Leeds, UK, where I’ll be exhibiting for the first time), I thought I should make a piece with Mizzle and Muggy, to be used for flyers and postcards.
But by luck, I sold a few life drawings and illustrations to an art collector this week, so as fate would have it I now have enough spare budget to get one of those pull up banners! The timing couldn’t have been better, and I am so grateful for it.
As such, I worked this piece on A3, rather than A5.
First up, the rough pencils:
I scanned this and and blew it up to the correct size, then using my lightbox, transfered the drawing to an A3 sheet of bristol with a blue pencil, before inking:
From here, I scanned it back in, and removed the blue lines.
…And then coloured it digitally:
Want to see the timelapse of the colour process? I made a video!
If that doesn’t play, here’s the direct link to it on youtube.
This design is now also available printed on wood, which I make by hand. Have a look!
