Robin says: "we need a graphic... something like Gus in his football photo."
"work your magic, mom." She was calling on my artist side - we know a few tricks.
"like you did for your book"
Its quick and fast.
Use a sharpie - in this case I used an artist sketching pen -
Trace the image you want onto a piece of clear plastic.
I use a plastic paper sleeve - place an enlarged printed image of the target inside the sleeve to keep it in place - and get to work.
As I am drawing for an out-line image - I scanned the figure with heightened contrast to create more distinct light and dark shapes.
There you have it!
Then I scanned the completed image and emailed it.
Now it was Robin's turn for a little magic.
The poster is ready.
Printed - at Staples - glossy paper
it looks great
and I hope will bring folks in
to hear the story
at the Capital Fringe.
