Drache Brokks Sketches and Ink Drawing

illustration, Uncategorized

The publisher (Lappan im Carlsen Verlag) I am working for has allowed me to show the sketches for the book I am working on at Illu16, which are also showcased at the exhibition. My original concept was to show how my pictures evolve. There wasn´t enough space to exhibit these stages, so I am showing this at my blog. This picture was made last weekend. First there are several pencil sketches. I put them together digitally and use this as basis for a drawing with ink and pen. I did a sperate layer using water colour but because I had to finish this very quickly I did part of the coloring digitally.




By the way, no dragons will be harmed during the making of this book (he is just a little sick and is transported to a doctor…)

Illu 16 in Cologne, 24.–26.3.2016

I am participating in the Illu 16, a show of illustrators from North Rhine-Westphalia. If you´re in Cologne, it is great I have already seen the rest of the exhibition yesterday. As an illustrator it is almost frightening how many talented people seem to be around. But it is also a nice atmosphere, cheap drinks and relaxed people.
