Rainy day in the city

Published in Highlights High Five Magazine - March 2013. 

* For anyone who's asked or wondered... I sketch by hand on paper/tracing paper (normally at a smaller size than the final will be printed). I scan the finished sketch into Photoshop and clean it up a bit (if it needs it). Once the sketch is approved I then place it into Adobe illustrator, block in all my color (changing colors and object placements is so much easier in Ai), then export the file as a PSD with layers. In Photoshop I add textures and shading/highlights to give it that final pizzazz I like so much.
