Adding Some Color

When I was younger I used to shade a drawing with colored pencil, getting the layers pretty thick, creating a wax like support for subsequent acrylic washes.  This keeps the paper from wrinkling and gives a fun painterly look.  I was playing here with different costume designs.

Illustration Update

I recently did this illustration for the Choice Eats tasting event in New York.  You can swing by the Shannon blog to read more about it.  I also updated the ole portfolio with a few of the pieces I've had here on the blog.  Check it out.

The image below is a snippet from another I can't show in it's entirety just yet.  Trying to go for the retro look.
