It was very important to me that this illustration be completed on a piece of blank Bristol board. It took me a ridiculous amount of time, but I'm quite happy with it. It looks better bigger though, and even better in person.

There is a great effect on the eyes of the wavy words. They almost seem to move...

This one took me almost 6 hours. My back hurt so badly when I finished. But it really looks amazing, especially when you hold it in your hands.
