the loss of letters




The latest Juno magazine illustration is taking shape. As usual, I'm going right to the wire with this one and still one more to do. This one needs some more work - I wanted Letraset but can't source any quickly enough, so will have to rely on Photoshop. Darn, was looking forward to getting my mitts on some of those letters, I remember how much fun it was to use. Just something so satisfying about scrubbing away at it with a pencil, then lifting the sheet away to see a perfectly formed letter. And way more soul, with all its imperfections, than a computer programme. Pff. Deadlines, dontcha love them.

Very nicely done. Sometimes the simplest illustrations say the most.
