I think it is good for a graphic designer to take a step back and go back to their roots.
Like most digital creatives I started out drawing and coloring by hand. Later in life I discovered Photoshop, which unleashed a new realm of possibilities. However... during the summer of 2013, I decided to take a step back and use a more traditional method of creating art.... by simply using my Pentel Quicker Clicker Pencil and some Promarkers. The results turned out quite well, and I will be adding more traditional and less digital style of illustrations to my portfolio as time progresses, thus testing out new dynamics of the Promarkers.
The following illustrations were created on 5.5" x 5.5" sheets of paper.
