When Avengers: Age of Ultron first came out on Blu-ray, my broth­er came over to watch the film at my house. While watch­ing, I sud­den­ly had an idea for a let­ter­ing project: I want­ed to draw the phrase Ultron seems obsessed with through­out the movie (which is, of course, from Pinoc­chio): “There are no strings on me.”

But as I’ve grown more inter­est­ed in illus­tra­tion and fash­ion, I’ve been study­ing Jes­si­ca Durrant’s work more and test­ing out how ink and water can work togeth­er.

For my first real for­ay into ink/­fash­ion-ish illus­tra­tion, I’m pret­ty pleased — and real­ly excit­ed about what I may be able to do with some prac­tice.
