no real reference this time, but my imagination was sparked by an image in a great book i just got called The Poster In History by Max Gallo. after a quick marker sketch in the ol' sketchbook, i put pencil to paper. working in a 8.5" x 11" space with about a 3/8" boarder - the image will be printed at 50% (4.25"x5.5"). once again, no lightbox - i didn't really need it, plus i didn't want to dwell on this too much. today i hit it with some ink - 'black star' ink; #3 brush for the hands, teeth, hair and eyes; #6 brush to fill in the big spots; #.03 & #1 micron pens for the letterwork and mixing board detail; and a little bit of white FW ink to tighten up the white letters on the mixer. my only concern is the amount of text below the image and how it will transfer when it's reduced. i really couldn't have made it any less wordy, but maybe could've cropped the image more to make space for the words.
