|The Fords, 2014, Adobe Illustrator|
Not too long ago I completed a fun little illustration for the Thomas Ford Memorial Library in Western Springs, Illinois. I was asked to create some comic book style drawings of Mr. and Mrs. Ford based on their portraits that hang in the library. The idea was to tie them into the summer reading program's theme of graphic novels.
I kept the drawing quick and loose, stuck to a limited palette and used a digital watercolor and ink look complete with hatching. Give a hoot kids, read a book.
