The Gemini and Scorpio parties are some of my favourite in NYC. Last week was their 10th birthday celebration, the Fairy Forest Frolic, so I leaped at the chance to design an illustration/postcard for it.
I’ve been really enjoying using my phone & the Frame Magic framing app to show snippets of my works in progress. The big one is from my sketch-notes that I took studying ballerinas for the fae dancers, the smaller two are my first concept sketch from my sketchbook.
I don’t have a shot of the set up, but I don’t have a real light table. So in order to redraw onto white paper, I took my glass top table, shoved my lizard’s lamp underneath with a 100w bulb in it, then drew on that for the inking. Who needs a $200 light table?
