I love doing art inspired by my favorite musicians or bands. This piece was experimental and fun, because the Gorillaz exist visually as a cartoon band. I was trying a new brand of pastels as the base, and sprayed it with a workable fixative, adding Copic markers to refine and sharpen details. The finishing was done with Acrylic markers to add depth and a little movement. The look I achieved was sharper than most of my canvas pieces. I also played with figuring out how to capture their personalities while holding on to the digital look of the band and using traditional techniques. to purchase prints of this piece click Here.
