Apropos of nothing, but I was chatting with a friend and fellow illustrator this morning about initial sketches and it reminded me that I had this image sitting on my hard-drive.
This is the rough process for my North By Northwest illustration for Gallery1988 earlier in the year (a handful of copies still available here - and with a seasonal discount!). You’re looking at my inital scribble (probably about 1” high), rough photoshop sketch to get balance of color and final art. There were more stages in between, but these I think best sell the process.
I’m a big fan of looking at other artists sketchbooks (Chris Ware and Paul Hornschemeier have both had lovely collections published). It’s a great insight into the creative process and can show an idea from it’s inception on the back of a diary page to a finished illustration. I shall be making the effort to post more sketchbook work in the new year - apologies in advance for clogging up your timeline…
