Urban Aloha

Being from Hawaii, I decided I'd try to do an "urban" take on the bold, Hawaiian "aloha" print.

Unit 1:

Step 1:  Pencil in

Step 2:  Darken the outlines with a black felt tip pen (medium point)

Step 3:  Trace outlines onto another sheet of paper using a thick black Sharpie pen, then fill in texture

Step 4:  Basic design done

Step 5:  Add detail using a thick red Sharpie pen

Step 6:  Continue to add detail using a fine-point black pen

Step 7:  Continue to add texture in negative space using light grey pencil

Step 8:  Cut, shift and tape image left-to-right

Step 9:  Cut, shift and tape image top-to-bottom, then add more detail using white-out pen

Step 10:  Outline design to fill in negative space of shifted design

Step 11:  Completed hand-drawn design

Step 12:  Scan drawing into computer to manipulate further, using Adobe Photoshop

Unit 2:
