Slightly bigger Version
In August I did these two pieces for the German Literature Magazine "Belletristik". I had to illustrate two poems, which were really odd, but that actually allowed me to be really free with the idea for the drawings.
The Belletristik is usually printed in black and a color, which is different in every issue. This time it had to be a yellowish orange. Therefore I had to work with seperate layers for the two colors, which I normally don't do.
The two poems didn't belong together so I was able to try two different approaches. The first illustration has a lot of shades of yellow in it and some pencil-lines whereas the coat is the only yellow part in the second illustration which is completely digital.
