An illustrated look at my pursuit of illustration...

My 10,000-hour journey of illustration began in photography, pixels were morphed into digital art, expanded via pigments in traditional Arts and Graphic design to build and hone the skills required for my imagery creation and layout design.

Pen and Ink fail, for a better Butterfly
Pen and Ink fail, for a better Butterfly

This image was a failure, the goal was to create an ink illustration for my portfolio. While composing the elements I had the idea to add one of my old incomplete oil paintings to the background. I loved the effect and the mood it created, but the time spent hatching and crosshatching the butterfly and the tree was all but lost, and the piece was no longer a pen and ink illustration.

Don't get me wrong, I am delighted with the result, but if this was not a personal piece, it would have been a failure to never see the light of day.

**Spoiler alert** My next illustration for my children's book illustration portfolio WILL be pen and ink.
