Ms. Red Flashback Part 4: an old Penelope Red postcard
I have always said I am not the best illustrator, but when I try, I can do it. The above postcard started off as a lead pencil drawing, A3 size, of a woman wearing a corset. I then coloured it in in black marker. Once it was photographed, I loaded it into adobe illustrator, and created the hard black line- to make it look like a comic.
I had only just learnt how to use Illustrator and I wanted to experiment! So this postcard is one of the designs I created. I did this about three years ago. The postcards for Penelope Red have changed, but I still like this one as well.
