Process Video - Better than Perfect

It's been a minute since I recorded a time lapse of one of my personal projects. Here's a quick WIP video from the illustration / lettering I did last night. This was maybe an hour or so of work time, maybe longer. What you see below is the creation process until I started playing with color palette. Happy with how this turned out, and I feel like the content of the piece is a little ironic when compared to my "type A" working style.

As always, this piece started as a loose sketch in my sketchbook, and then was completed 100% digitally using Photoshop. I use the dry brush pack from and do all of my work using my Wacom Cintiq, which I could not function without.

Process Video - New York, New York

Excited to share some of my lettering process with you. I recorded this stop motion video on my computer to show my illustration technique . . .  (that sounds maybe TOO professional) or more just the massive amount of decisions I make and take back within the process of creating one piece of artwork. I think this was approximately one hour of illustration work, and not pictured is the second hour of choosing colors repeatedly until I landed on the palette below. The sketch didn't even have an apple in it, or look even remotely similar to where this piece eventually ended up. I hope you enjoy watching this video, and feel free to reach out with any questions. This entire piece was created in Photoshop, on my Wacom Cintiq, using Kyle's brushes available here.
