I’ve been a big fan of the Old 97′s for what feels like forever. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been listening to the Old 97′s lead singer, Rhett Miller’s new album non-stop (do check it out as it’s great stuff), but as soon as I saw the latest Illustration Friday theme, “shiny,” the first thing that popped into my head was this scene, inspired by the Old 97′s song, “Question.”
This is the first illustration that I’ve done in quite a bit of time that hasn’t been of the vector variety. I have to say it was fun to pull out the ol’ Wacom tablet and experiment with brushes. I do believe I’ve even found my new favorite pastel brush to use. This might call for more raster illustration experiments in the near future. Or more drawing at the very least.
In the meantime, if you haven’t heard it, please do enjoy what is probably one of my most favorite songs in the whole wide world.
