This started like any of my other illustrations, a pen drawing in my visual diary. But the closer it got to completion, the more I felt it needed something more… maybe something incorporated into it, or as a background. I initially thought ink splatters and I may still experiment further with it, but as I experimented with my current ink splotches, and how it interacted with the illustration (layers in screen mode) I really liked how the bottom illustration layer interacted with the splotches and went further with it.

I kind of wished that the red ink would contrast into black more, but that may be a future experimentation.

During the production of this, I ended up with about 8-9 A2 layers and combined the different patterns in different ways to come up with this final background image.
I really enjoy making different ink styles for backgrounds so I may further work on this one. It may be a work in progress, but I like this particular version.

The ink doesn’t look much like blood, but I thought it was a bit of a fitting working title.


I am an designer and artist who works primarily in Illustration, design and photography. I’m planning on expanding my horizons to all sorts of mediums and outputs so everyone can enjoy my work in some degree.
