'I'm Not Rich But I'm Doing OK' | Daily Drawing #255.
I'll just keep repeating this phrase as I file my taxes.
Tools: I did the base lettering with a Mary Le Plume II Brush Pen. I then traced over the brush marks with pencil, correcting and accentuating stroke lines. Then I scanned the tracing paper and pulled it into Photoshop for further correction and adjustment. I printed out the traced lines at a larger size, and traced over them with the Sakura Pigma Sensei pens. Scanned, cleaned up, then vector traced in Illustrator.
This sounds like a lot of steps - but because the style is so loose, the entire process took me less than an hour. I actually spend more time cleaning up the file and deciding on colors (which I'm still not sold on, I'm going to make other versions of this).
