Illustration Friday: Beginner

Illustration Friday: Beginner

This is an illustration of an early scene from Kelly Link‘s story “Magic for Beginners”, and also the beginning of a beautiful friendship: the librarian Fox, a secondary character on an elusive television series, battles the statue of George Washington in the Angela Carter Memorial Garden on the 17th floor of the Free Peoples’ World Tree Library. And yes, the story is that wonderful.

Pen and ink line drawing with colour and texture added in Photoshop, trying out a technique (coloured lines). I’m enjoying this lighter style but don’t want to use it exclusively (although I am very fond of George Washington’s shoes).

  1. Nice piece! The new technique is working. I also took a look at your sketchbook… I’m jealous – great work!
