    Favorited! Fantastic illustration. Almost looks like a woodcut instead of pen and ink. GREAT execution.

  • Thank you so much for the comment! I achieved the woodcut effect by using pen and ink on watercolour paper. :))) JD

    …but without the watercolor. Brilliant. I always use pen and ink on watercolor paper; but never thought to do it with_out_ the watercolors. lol. It’s great, in every way.

    In your profile you wrote: “I don’t make any money and it’s self indulgent crap.” That HAS to be a joke. You are one of the best illustrators I have found on Redbubble or anywhere. With the right agent you could be famous – seriously!!!

  • Nice to meet you! Thank you for taking the time to read my profile! I do run a small graphic design business from home but it’s not enough to pay the bills so I work in advertising to make up the shortfalls. I’m very humbled by your comments but I do believe there are many illustrators here who are far better than me. :))
