This little Deadpan Alley drawing is done in Staedtler Lumocolor and other inks. It measures 5 X 7.25 inches and is drawn on a vintage paper with a portion of a short hand lesson printed on it. It even has lovely handwritten notations throughout. I liked the look of the rough edge on the old paper here, so the piece will be mounted on black card stock measuring 8x10 inches and is suitable for framing.
This image is cropped-please see final photo for complete view. Until I get overwhelmed by orders, I will continue to do original illustrations on my handmade mailers. There is an image of one of these in the second to last photo.
My illustrations are hand drawn with ink and other media like watercolor, acrylic and colored pencil. These particular illustrations are done with a free hand. No pencil sketches beforehand, just seeing what develops. I try not to screw things up and if I succeed with the ink portion, I go from there.
Your illustration will be signed, dated, wrapped in a plastic sleeve, protected with a firm backing and shipped with care.
Thanks for looking, and feel free to write me with any questions! All artwork copyrights retained by the artist.
I will ship to other countries. Just contact me for a quote.
