New personal illustration work for 2015: The Mask
We spend so much of our lives online. Are we ever showing our true indentity?
Are we keeping it hidden behind an infinite amount of avatars, profile pics and statue updates?
Are humans creating a different kind of animal? A virtual, multi-faceted and colourful beast?
I first sketched the piece out in my A5 notebook. I scanned in my rough pencils, retouched them and scaled them up to A3.
I printed them off and used them as a template for the final A3 drawing. I drew the illustration using 0.05 - 0.8 Unipen Fine Line technical pens, I then edited and coloured it in Adobe Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Intuous 3 tablet.
