No Parachute Required Show!

The No Parachute Required Show was a great success! I would like to thank everyone who came out and showed their support.

For personal and gallery images, I always start off by drawing what I want to draw. The meanings and conceptual ideas behind these images come naturally during the process. Here are the stages I went through to create “Monkey Business”.

Initial sketch, marker and pen on paper.

Final art, Line art scanned and coloured in Photoshop

With this illustration, I explored the elements of FIGHT. The two fighters are the main focal point but a closer observation reveals a crowd of monkeys who take on human-like qualities. Even though the crowd is separated from the fight by a fence, they are very much in essence, the driving force of the fight.
