The process of creating the work is 100% traditional media.
“There are a lot of people out there who color their hand-drawn pieces in photoshop or whatever. I don’t object to their doing so, but at the end of the day I want a single piece of art that was all hand-made. I use watercolors for all the color and titanium-white gouache for the bright whites. Getting the right color densities and contrasts is one of the hardest things I’ve had to learn. Always learning, never mastering.”
