dear blog, recently i had a bit of an illustration freak out, and wanted to improve my quality of work. i wanted to make my work look more professional, and include more environments. being in a portfolio prep class awarded me the freedom to do a new piece on whatever i wanted. since i love drawing musicians, i started from there. luckily, i had obtained some new linoleum blocks and colored inks for my birthday! i then made two prints, and put them together in photoshop. this is the result of my arduous work. i'm rather pleased, if i do say so myself.
