Graphite drawings of the various elements used in the illustration.
I used Staedtler B, 2B and 4B pencils along with a Mono Zero and my creepy kneaded eraser sidekick.

I am an illustrator/graphic designer from the island of Jamaica who enjoys fusing organic and geometric elements to tell visual stories.
