Last month I was thrilled to be asked to illustrate the banner for Cult Pen’s newsletter, Penorama. I decided on a Celtic knotwork theme, using lettering based on those found in the Lindisfarne Gospels, and incorporating my Celtic dragons.
The piece was drawn by hand first, then outlined with Faber Castell PITT artist pens, and coloured with Derwent Graphitint pencils. I ended up drawing and colouring in two versions, as I thought the background for the first version (image number 9) was a bit too busy for this particular illustration. It is definitely a background I would use in a future illustration though.
You can see the illustration in the newsletter here, and scroll down to the bottom of the newsletter for a link to read an interview with me. Thanks for asking me to create the banner, Cult Pens!
