Steampunk Tycris

illustration of I chose Scratchboard to do a portrait of a political figure. I love the drama that can be created by this medium, white lines etched into the board that help define the hi lights and shadows. The drawing began as a detailed pencil drawing, then art was transferred to the scratchboard where a transition of the drawing is done in reverse, where what was black is going to be white. I added this to,
Next illustration of Wine Label for Duckwalk Vineyards on Long Island NY. The vineyard had an open competition for local artists to supply artwork for their new brand of wines. I used colored pencil to render my label design using local ducks to our region. Additionally, I added grapes and vines around a wooden weaved border. My artwork was in the running, yet was not selected. They decided on a very simple, iconic label.
