Andrew Bird Music Illustration
Pen and Ink with Watercolor
I’m starting a new series of work featuring musicians. These are larger pieces at 22″ x 30″ on watercolor paper. I start by drawing the image in pencil followed with the line work with pen and ink washes. The background is watercolor wash with splatter and dripping techniques.
I’m finishing them off by selecting a song and working type digitally on top. These are quite a bit of work but a great deal of fun!
