I started this spread by using my big piece of graphite….thinking if I didn’t like what I drew on the pages, I could very easily paint over it. After I had sketched in the faces and letters, I got out my black FW acrylic ink and drew over the graphite using the dropper in the bottle as my drawing instrument. The page was prepped with white acrylic paint. I usually never do that and I also debated on whether to use acrylic paints on the face and background for color, but I decided to leave it. I did use markers, pens, and some ink on the background. I was flipping through a magazine and saw the words, “make a difference” and that became my theme.
