     illustration by Steve Simpson

    Inspired by some of my favourite things;
    Victorian encaustic ceramic tiles, folk art and old school tattoos.
  • Initial quick pencil sketch
  • refined digital sketch
  • with a complicated limited palette I find it best to create a rough colour (digital)
  • Artwork created on the iPad Pro in Affinity Designer 
  • detail - texture created using a combination of brushes and overlaid textures
  • Final Artwork 
  • process video
