I’ve been milling over the idea of using a theme to practice my digital illustrations and use it as a weekly goal for myself. The theme is Summer of Comedy: featuring comedians and/or podcasters. Podcasting, particularly comedy podcasts, have become a huge part of my daily life keeping me motivated while working, drawing, designing, cleaning, etc. To show my gratitude, I’ll create and post at least one illustration a week featuring one of these awesome people. I’m so grateful to all the hardworking people and companies that produce podcasts including the engineers, networks, producers and hosts themselves. Thank you for all your handwork and giving us something funny and hopeful when the world and the news feels so dark.
This series will be an exercise in illustration playing with style, different effects and techniques. It will be an interesting and fun challenge.
