This is another story without words I made recently, this one is called candles.

I almost didn’t want to draw on this print – it was so pretty before I started.

Fortunately, thanks to the wonders of technology, I can scan whatever art I make and then create fearlessly. Here’s a scan of the original before I added the story:

When I look at the originals so many shapes just jump out at me – it’s nice to think I could use the same exact print for a different story if I wanted, or even better – someone else could make up their own story.

Another thing I like about the scanned versions is they usually come out a little brighter – and of course you can change them in Photoshop if you like.
