How did you make this work:
I wrote myself a creative brief to illustrate book covers for my favourite books. To create the covers I started with a lino cut to form my black line work and then added colour digitally. I enjoy the mix of traditional and digital: the methodical carving of the lino cut and the immediacy of adding colour and editing digially.
