a return to my roots

DECEMBER 8, 2008
Ministry Magazine, cover.

When I first began my journey as an illustrator, I did so brandishing an exacto and essdee scraperboard. My first published illustration was scratchboard and watercolor... and it appeared in the Charlotte Observer. I've pretty much have abandoned the medium but figured it would be perfect for this assignment... although technically I acheived the effect digitally, The result was the same, lots of scraping (with the stylus) and a cramped hand.
