Tell’em

Title:  Tell’em

So this is a typographic illo that I did.  Excuse the B word, and this is a quote from Madonna, “I’m tough, I’m ambitious, and I know exactly what I want.  If that makes me a bitch, okay.”  I found this initially when I was looking for a quote by a historical feminist, and you don’t know my reaction when I saw this; like “Oh gurrrrl, yaaaaaaas, tell’em!!!”  

So after I got my sassy attitude on, it was just another day at my studio scratching the oil pastel plate…

and the whole drawing was like this;

Yup, there was no space to fit one last flower on the top…  Thank God for Photoshop.  I actually didn’t use this bee at the end, but still I think it’s a cute bee:)  

Some other elements were done by ink.  I can actually get fairly similar line quality by ink drawing, so technically I don’t have to use oil pastels…  Well, l guess I have a polygamy relationship with oil pastel and ink haha.

Finally colouring them in Photoshop.

At this point, I felt like I was doing a flower arrangement!

Here are some close-ups.

So again, the final illo is this;

Put your sassy on, ladies!!  Put your swag on, gentlemen!!
