ink, watercolour, pen, linocut print
It has been a long absence, but not for lack of drawing. Yesterday, I finished the final working drawing for my draft 40-page picture book, The Outlaw. Feeling fine.
Above is part of that image, and below some process images from the last few weeks:
WiP 10 - pen over frisket film
It can be therapeutic to just draw lines randomly.
WiP 11 - frisket film removed
This will be the front endpaper. Back endpaper is similar.
WiP 12 - modified linocut
WiP 13 - more frisket film -
Masking for watercolour washes, ink splatters, pen lines, etc
WiP 14 - paper cut-outs and shadows
Work in progress 14 is probably my favourite. I cut out two figures and moved them under different lighting to cast proper shadows for one of the images near the end.
Next steps, scanning and mocking up a dummy.
Just reward: seeing Patrick deWitt at the Writers Fest. Yay!
