Ben the Illustrator ‘shows progress’

Stephen Chan Posted by Stephen Chan15th Jun 09

Ben the Illustrator has definitely improved greatly during the past few years, but I don’t need to tell you that, you can see it with your own eyes. We have become ‘Twitter’ addicts recently, and this has to be one of the highlights the site has brought us. During the span of 1 short day Ben updated his twitter followers with Progress Shots every hour or so, for the creation of his ‘Bubble Trees’ art print. It was just so exciting waiting for the next update, and seeing the process, from start to finish (all the bits you usually don’t get to see).

Closer detail can be viewed Here:
Bubbletrees Stage 1 – The initial drawing Ben’s working on in Illustrator now!
Bubbletrees Stage 2 – Vector outlines, done.
Bubbletrees Stage 3 – Block colours laid, now onto details.
Bubbletrees Stage 4 – Detailing has begun. Still playing with colours!
Bubbletrees Stage 5 – Grass detailing finished, pompom/snowball trees finished. Now onto extra bits.
Bubbletrees Stage 6 – Stylized rabbit added, now on to more flourishes.
Bubbletrees art print all finished! On sale 29th June!
