SEMPER ARDENS


/ (1 of 1)



My entry for the 2013 Observer/Jonathan Cape short story competition. At least partially based on real events.

I broke out a Wacom tablet to colour this bad boy digitally, thinking that with only 4 pages to do, it couldn't be too bad. While I still feel a nasty disconnect 'drawing' on a horizontal surface but seeing the result on a vertical screen, the resulting colour job seemed to work out, so perhaps a technique to be revisited.

Didn't win this time round, but hey, third year lucky, 2014, you're mine!
