The 11″ x 14″ illustration above started out as a typical black and white page in my sketchbook. I shared a photo of the finished drawing, and several people encouraged me to expand the project into a larger piece. I refined the original doodles and added color with Prismacolor markers on 150 lb. paper. There’s no real theme to this artwork, aside from experimenting with stippling; it’s a collection of characters with a bright palette and a little white space in between. May this sketch bring a smile to your face!
