Hey Jude (sold)


Art: Hey Jude (sold) by Artist Shelly Bedsaul
She's a combination of several friends of high school days. The theme was inspired by the May 2007 Nibblefest theme, the Groovy 60's and of course, my youth in Northern California. Some of my first artistic inspirations came from the illustrators of concert posters in San Francisco. This also serves as a homage to them. My technique, though time consuming, is simple. I start with a preliminary sketch in graphite. When my design is satisfactory, I ink the sketch, using a black, 05, pigma micron pen. I use Prismacolor pencils. Each area is a layering of about 5 different colors, going from dark to light, until the paper is totally burnished. Once the coloring is complete, I re-ink to make the line work a true black. It is then sprayed with workable fixatif to seal, protect and prevent wax bloom.
