Foundations for this work were laid down for Day 20 of Inktober 2017, a challenge started by Jake Parker. The prompt word was ‘deep’. Additional conditions were imposed as a personal challenge:
– Work on the prompt could only happen between 00:00 and 23:59 on 20/10/2017, and
– Solution must be created entirely on the iPad Pro with the apple pencil.

Colour sketches were produced on the day. During later revisions, many elements were reworked, such as the inclusion of background and foreground elements. It was revised and completed in February-March 2018. As per personal conditions, the work was entirely completed on the iPad Pro in Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.

“You know, they say…”
