asaf :: since the art supply store where I used to buy my inking paper had closed down and replaced by a sunglasses shop, I failed to find a decent illustration paper in tel aviv. while drowning in despair I decided I had it with materials that run out on you - paper, ink, pencils, erasures etc. no more scanning, enlarging, reducing, lightboxing and washing brushes.
this illustration was done for a piece about women's tendency to admire the handy-man type of guy. the sketches done directly on the computer may lack the instant charm of pencil, but contained enough details to show the overall idea.
working on the final I was glad to rediscover all the advantages of the computer. like ctrl-z while inking. the only thing missing though is those small black spots on your fingers after a hard day of work.
