I cut this with an x-acto, after i drew it on the backside, and then photographed it. I think I might stick with brush and ink, but for something creative to try, it was fun.
Literally! I used an x-acto, after pencilling the drawing onto cardstock. I then scanned it with my black sketch book (for contrast) and re-worked the colour in photoshop.
I used a #7 Sable/Synthetic brush for these letters, and then changed their colour in illustrator. I forgot to mention in the last entry, I used a pentel sign pen for the letters and then also used illustrator for the coloured backgrounds.
