Hi Joana, your drawing skills are amazing. Now just a technical curiosity. Why have you chose to outline Josephine with black multiliner instead of your usual skin? It is maybe to match all the grays?
Thanks for your comment (and for your email, which I’ll respond to shortly.) I’ve gone back to using a dip pen for the outlines because I like the clarity, the quality of the lines and the fact that the illustration pops more off the page. I least I think so! I’m also very fond of the look of retro advertising posters and those often have the black outlines as well. What’s your opinion – do you think that one style comes off better than the other in my work?
This illustration is still a work in progress – or, to be more precise – one that I’m going to redo. I love the concept, but need to make some important changes. I might even be able to post the 2nd version tonight.
