This is the finished piece
"A Whale of a Tale"
that was inspired by two twitter threads
I think it took me from concept to finish about two or three weeks and I was working on a couple of other illustrations at the same time while one dried I would work on a different one. I will post the other two illustration after the 2014 Tomie dePaola Awards is finished.
size: 9 X 24 watercolor, pen & ink and finished in Photoshop
