Drawing - Highlighters
Here, I just started filling in blocks of color with highlighters on that old standby, the Blank Piece of Paper I wasn't attempting to draw anything, just block out areas of brightness contiguous with one 'bother.
Then, the concept became laying down cool colors (blues, greens) in the background and warmer colors (reds, yellows) upfront.
Next, it's all discovery. What image is hidden within all that highlighting? And then-- through the canny use of other pens, massaging that image to the fore.
Viola! Whattayaknow. It turns out to be a portrait of a seriously irradiated dude.
"Go," as they say in the colloquial, "figure!"
