Title: EBN (Emergency Broadcast Network) - Redux
Medium: Procreate, Adobe Illustrator, iPad Pro, Apple Pencil
Size: 10 inches x 10 inches, 300 dpi
This piece was conceptualized over 20 years ago when I was a student in art school (RMCAD). EBN started out as a marker drawing (1992), then a 16 foot x 16 foot mural (1993), then a 24 inch x 24 inch acrylic painting (1998) and finally a digital painting that utilized nearly every technique and trick I've picked up over the years (2016-17).
EBN was redrawn in Procreate with Apple Pencil. However, Adobe Illustrator was heavily used throughout the process due to the graphic design techniques in the composition . EBN is a hybrid between Procreate and Illustrator with each application lending it's own unique look to the end result. This latest version of EBN took nearly 200 hours of painstaking creation. There truly was no stone left unturned.
The piece is intended to be printed at a size of 4 feet x 4 feet but once it's finished being vectorized in Illustrator I'll be able to print it at any size without loss of quality. Additionally, the color may change just a bit once the color correction process starts. It won't be drastic but several areas need to be addressed.
Finally, this piece could be considered a self portrait and chronicles several aspects of my life, both past and present.
