Drawing / IllustrationJanuary 21, 2016

I was rooting through some old boxes of artwork and found this piece. I had totally forgotten about it – it was an illustration for a Graphic Artists Guild Event poster or something like that. I pulled it out because it had yellowed – so I scanned it and corrected the color. The first photo is the piece adjusted – the second photo is the piece as I found it, with all the yellowing. I assume the yellowing was due to the fixative that I used.

When it was printed there was a blue background that covered the entire piece except for the shoes. The shoes had a white background to make them pop out. The effect was make it look like a duotone. I will have to see if I have the actual printed piece somewhere.
