A while ago I did a series of illustrations with a girl and her dragon traveling around London. Since then I've wanted to do a children's book series where in each book they explore a different city. I decided to replace the girl and dragon with a pair I did a painting of my sophomore year of college, because they were much more fun. So yeah. I want to call it Bo & Lewis Take (insert city here). I've got a London one sketched out already.
This illustration was definitely one of the most challenging I've ever done. I always feel like I've struggled with color, and this was ALL THE COLORS plus crazy lighting. I'm happy with how it turned out. Below are my black and white study and a color study.
