Underwater

Nothing compares to the look and feel of old colour images printed in books and comics. The offset colours that didn't quite match the lines and brown tinged paper always attracted me to the images. They seemed to have an imperfect handmade feel that you don't see much these days. In this illustration I tried to replicate this feeling mixing my love of halftone patterns with early 90's Johnny Quest style colouring. You can really see the intent of the illustration in the zoomed up version below.
