Sketching

Here is my initial sketch.  I changed it quite a bit once I brought it into illustrator but here is where it started.

After importing into illustrator I went back and made a few new shapes and letters to scan in.

I haven't done a lot of drawing or lettering so instead of using pencil and then going to ink I just started doodling with ink right away.

Digitizing

I brought all the pieces together in illustrator and started with a black / white / navy pallet until I had the pieces arranged to my liking.

Colouring

Who would've thought limiting the pallet to three colours would be so hard!  I played around with a few variations and eventially settled on white paper, a sky blue background, gold & pink for the lettering, as well I wanted to try the over print of the pink to get another darker colour in there.
