The Perils Of Keeping It Real. I finished the line work and was tearing it off the Arches watercolor 30 page pad when it ripped due to the adhesive on the pad being way too adhesive. Thank goodness I wasn't happy with the illustration and redid another one. Sometimes when creating art the old school way, unforeseen mishaps may happen, like a tear in the paper or an ink blob from the pen. Whatever form it may manifest as, you have to overcome the overwhelming urge to hurl and move on to fix the problem or as in this case start over. Working analog is not as forgiving as working digital...no command Z. Will post the finished art after I apply the watercolors to it. This illustration will be available as a giclee print soon...stay tuned.
