“As usual, the cover was drawn on 500 series 2-ply Strathmore cold press Bristol board with a 10x15.5" image area.

Pencilled with an HB .5 mm mechanical pencil

Outline inked with a Koh-i-Noor ArtPen (which was discontinued about 15 years ago).

Black was spotted with a Pentel BrushPen filled with my own ink. Details drawn with two ArtPens--an older one for bold lines and the dot pattern and a newer, stiffer one for finer lines.
