Nikki’s method of working

Nikki first started drawing cartoons at the beginning of lockdown as she wanted to produce art that has a humorous element to it. Her method of working began when she was doing an online illustration course. The tutor explained how he worked – first he drew on A3 + paper then scanned his illustration to his computer and used image manipulation software to make alterations.
The Illustrator was still able to sell his original artwork, and had an image he could use commercially for a book etc.

Separate drawings on A4 paper

However, in Nikki’s case, it’s unlikely anyone will buy her original cartoons and she can’t afford an A3+ scanner. So Nikki decided to draw the dogs etc, separately, on A4 paper, scan the drawings on my A4 scanner and build up the elements of the cartoon in photoshop. This method allows her to move and resize any of the separate scanned drawings.
