maikeplenzke: “A personal illustration, that was inspired by an article about why kids do not play freely in nature and don’t learn to explore it on their own anymore. One reason was that young parents are too scared and teach them safety very early.
This piece was inspired by the movie "Up." This video begins with work on my final pencil drawing, tracing it in ink, and then moves to the digital aspect of finishing the piece. Thank goodness for Illustrator so that I can clean up my shaky ink lines!
