Drawing / Digital Media: Illustrations
The majority of these illustrations started out as an ink drawing on paper.  The drawings are scanned (sometimes several drawings are combined for what is depicted) and then manipulated with ink coloration.  Additional color is provided through digital collage and paint.  I love using photos of unusual everyday items as background.  Sliced beets, spaghetti in a colander, a dirty swimming pool bottom, algae, and other textures have been incorporated.  Occasionally, I hand paint a specific background for a drawing in acrylic medium on Bristol board.  Those backgrounds are scanned and added digitally as well.
