Try And Hold Steady

I love coffee. 

So much so my hand can never remain at a constant state of rest... this led to the inspiration and thought process behind this next piece.

I decided to bring back my old friend the contour drawing and have the line express the piece... after hours  of scribbling out shadows and shapes this piece came to be. 

I started the early work in Illustrator and finished in Photoshop.  Many designers love doing the entire design in Illustrator but I love my brush settings too much.

After a could of overlays and some play with color this design came to be.  

I will be posting some charcoal works, stencil pieces and digital sketches later this weekend.


Currently listening to Local Natives, The Mars Volta and last but not least Rancid (great show last week!).
