Archived Art - circa '95 Jacket


Here's an 11"x14" pen and ink illustration I did back in 1995. This piece was completed using the stipple technique (tiny dots). I have to say it took me a year or so to really figure out how to stipple effectively. As strange as it sounds it all comes down to SPECIFIC dot placements. That's a confusing concept because stipple looks random.

While I was learning this technique I was heavily influenced by illustrator Randy Glass. I don't think there was anything he couldn't illustrate in that style and make it look spectacular.

I love this piece. The fabric looks amazing. I am a stipple artist in Michigan for fun and appreciate how that piece turned out.
