Illustrating – It’s hard work to make it look so easy.





Professional illustrators make it look easy, but there’s a lot of work to be done before the final art makes it’s way out into the big wide world. Denis Alonso gives us a quick step-by-step guide of just how much hard work it takes to make it look easy.

Step 1, a quick black and white concept sketch. Step 2, the colour palette choice and Step 3, the final rendering.

Now add a client breathing down your neck making changes every five minutes and a looming deadline and you’ll get a pretty good idea what top illustrators go through every day of the week.

That’s why we love it!
