What's the process of making one of these illustrations, from initial idea to final artwork?
We have to be efficient and fast, since the time from receiving the text to delivery is very short. First, we read the text, jot down initial thoughts and ideas, before further researching.
Then, we focus on content and composition, which we sketch with ink and brushes and share with the editor.
With the feedback in mind, we then work in Illustrator to make the final artwork.
