This is an illustration for an article in the upcoming August 2009 issue of In Touch magazine. I had a lot of fun doing it. I wanted to take a more rugged approach to Abraham than most of the illustrations and paintings I’ve seen. The base illustration was done with a Bic ballpoint pen, with color and additional background texture added in Photoshop.
