A couple of months back, I was invited to do an illustration for a British magazine called AMMO. The brief was pretty open: create an illo to fit in with the theme of 'play.' Well, since I love music it was pretty obvious to me to do something relating to playing an instrument. So that's where the idea of the girl and her broken guitar comes from. Usually, my illustration style is to do all the linework and colour in a vector program, but this time I wanted to try something a bit different so I drew all the lines in pencil, scanned it, then coloured it digitally. Last week AMMO magazine was delivered to my mailbox, and I was so pleased to see how it turned out. No matter how long I spend looking/agonising over an illo when I'm drawing it, I never get tired of the feeling of seeing something in print!
