These lighthouses have wandered around in my head for a long while. They finally found their way into paper and then to graph paper. After that, one image was hand drawn and colored. After an initial scan, I revisit the art, a nd add shading before scanning again. Then they are assembled in Photoshop where some lighting and color can be adjusted. The cards will feature the graphic illusion on the front, and a single image of the art on the back.
There is a lot of ground work , prep work and diligence that goes into most art. Whether it's paper or wood or canvas the end results are determined by the preparation.
In between working on these lighthouses, I 've been struggling with a computer that wants to be retired; cutting, priming and base coating new pickets, dog sitting at Rakas' puppy's house and missing my friend, DT.
And a bit of sugar skull scheming.....
