Optical Wonder Boy
Here’s a fun new piece I just finished working on. I did a bit of experimentation on this illustration. I’m happy with how it turned out and I had a lot of fun with it. It was one of those pieces where I really enjoyed watching it come together.
I’ve been inspired a lot lately by the process I use when working on our letterpress, which is to do a lot of drawing and inking with black and use only a few colors beneath the black.
I’m a big fan of Coney Island – that’s the famous Wonder Wheel behind him, and the Coney Island Cyclone in the lower right. This piece is part of a new postcard set I’m putting together to send out to art directors. I’ll be posting the second illustration soon, so stay tuned.
