Some time ago I reported about the creation process of the typographic illustration of my horse Roy. Now I added a fancy typographic background! (See the former blog article about the horse illustration here!)
First I made a preperatory drawing with a pencil on tracing paper.
Then I illustrated the elements in a vector program. I focused on the shapes, so I made them black and white, to see if they also work without adding colours. During the illustration process I changed some forms and added some more details.
Finally I coloured it and put it on an uncoated paper background.
