Illustrated Art Show
Showcasing not only some of the biggest names in the business, but also offering a glimpse beneath the surface into tomorrow’s most promising artists.
My collection for this particular art show consisted of working on cardboard. I had previously used Posterman markers and for this show I thought I would try Montana markers - largely due to economical considerations in that they were refillable and I could buy spare nibs as well.
I had outside work to get done which, thankfully, left me with only a week to come up with concepts and pieces. I had been a while since I had used markers for painting and only actually realised what I had forgotten in the show. I introduced a new medium - tea.
