This was a piece commissioned by Colleen of two main characters of a major project that I’m probably going to be doing the illustrations for, because Colleen’s work is full of character and fun to look at but she wants to sit the art on this one out as of this moment. The genial gent is Toby and the woman holding the chicken and sleeping on his shoulder is Ryan. And he may think that she’s doing so specifically because she totally digs him but she’s actually just exhausted. (Yes, that’s a woman. She’s wearing men’s clothes and has short hair, but I assure you.)
I’m sorry guys, it scanned SO BADLY. The bristol I used with this and the John piece is 11”x14” and while the John piece lost some quality, this one really, really suffered. The color correction isn’t the best, and because there was so much wash and paper warping there are just…shadows EVERYwhere. I’m going to probably end up taking this to Collective and having them do a professional scan for me if I can’t eventually get a hold of a larger, good-quality flatbed scanner.
