I have been wanting to illustrate an ampersand for ages. I'd actually like to do a bunch of letters, but an ampersand seemed like a good place to start.
I finally took some time for myself to just play in my sketchbook last Saturday night. I did some painting, some collage, some scribbling (I love to just scribble!) and ended up with this image. It was fun to go through some of the papers I've been collecting for years and actually use them.
I decided to make some prints of the ampersand and they'll be available at the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo next week. Come see me at table #D07 if you want one 🙂
Here's some process shots of how the image came together:
