It boggles my mind that this is a digital illustration (even though it’s obvious). I guess coming from a fine arts background, I’ve always been much more comfortable with hand-drawing illustrations and working out colors and what-nots on paper instead of on the screen, thus really using the latter only for clean-up and layout. That said, the ephemeral hand-drawn quality coupled with digital precision is so exquisite here, that I’m pretty much sold.
