Tubes of Wonder - Abstract Watercolor + Pen Illustration by 

Check out the time-lapse video with the making of this drawing in HD!

This is a bit of an experiment with a new take on two of my favorite media: Ink and watercolor. I used Copic Multiliner SP pigment-based pens with Dr. Ph. Martin’s liquid watercolors to get such vibrant color. The process was really just going back and forth between watercolor and pen as I went, in my familiar abstract style.

It’s also a time-lapse video! The illustration was started on August 21st 2012, which I continued on the 22nd, 24th, and finished on the 27th. A rough estimate is that I spent around 5-6 hours working on it, all told.

The audio track is me singing along to the video while watching a test render, with a bunch of random audio filters thrown on it. I did not make a serious attempt at songwriting, it is just me making noises because I got a bit bored of doing narrations

I’m a Denver, Colorado artist specializing in vibrant, fluid, psychedelic abstract paintings and illustrations in a variety of media. I work in pen, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, photography, and digital painting.

    Just saw the youtube video on my own time and not while on RB. I am surprised I haven’t seen your work before. It is insane! You would be interested in another artist here who your work reminds me of. Continued success. :)

  • Lenora, Thanks for the comment. I appreciate the sentiment. :) Send me a message with the other artist’s name and I’ll check it out.
