I’ve been working on a new Series of Charcoal Drawings mixed with Digital Elements. After taking Renee Mueller’s Collected Stories class I explored drawing with Charcoal again, but I found that bringing those drawings into Adobe Fresco or Procreate I could then add digital elements to finish the illustrations.
By adding the digital elements I can add textures and colors with the brushes, as well as ephemera and handwritten text that can be incorporated into the background by using layer modes.
These techniques are the same as the ones I use for the Mixed Media Graphic Art illustrations that I teach in my class.
I’m loving the level the emotion I can create in these illustrations by combining the analog drawings with the digital elements.
