This is a freelance digital illustration that I created for a corporate United Way fundraising campaign. The image is displayed as a paneled mural in the company’s main lobby. The finished size is 22 by 14 feet. I’ve been creating these for over ten years. See more here. Each year has a theme, and I either produce an image based on that theme, or on a concept that the client comes up with. I always create a concept sketch for approval. I use Photoshop and a Wacom drawing tablet, and import the sketch into Photoshop as a template. These can get pretty detailed, so I make multiple layers so that I can keep track of everything. Despite my effort to keep them simple, I must admit, I love noodling with all the minutiae.
