A map commission I made for a lovely customer last week. He wanted me to draw him a map for Castle Rocks (where some of Stephen King’s books take place). I had a lot of fun drawing it & if you know someone who’d like a custom made map – write me an email, I’d love to draw one for you.
Here’s how the commission process would look like:
Find out how I plan an illustration from start to finish. First I decide what I want to draw and look up inspiration in the big wide web. Then I figure out the shapes and where I want to put things. Then I write a list of things I want to have in the picture, a garden gnome, a painter, pots, pans, toaster, marmalade, a pig lamp, amelie, photos … After that I look up references for those things (here all from the film ‘Amélie’). Then comes the messy line art and when I’m pleased with the outcome, I go over it with cleaner lines. Last but not least I colour it in 🙂
