Wise and Traveling
Recently, I made a friend at a party in Bushwick and he commissioned me to do a heading for his blog, Wisdom Traveler. He is a meditation pupil and jet setter, looking for words of the wise on his travels. I’m actually inspired to travel now, too! In one more day I will be on my way to Angouleme, France. I’ll be illustrating my stay at a chateau and the city as it gears up for its annual comics festival.
Prelimary sketch idea, just doodlin’ and figuring out what kind of characters I might want.
I fleshed out some ‘types’ of people that should make up the crowd.
Sketch and color composition, more developed, to get an idea of the tone and better environmental placement. As you can see in the final image, I made even more changes, added characters, and moved some around. Most of Yuriys recent travels have been through Asia, so we brought in more people from those areas. So I’m headed to France, now. My next project will be debuting here on my site this Saturday! And will continue throughout February when I come back. Au Renoir!
