Today I got hooked on reading stories of missing persons. I find these stories extremely tragic because generally you already know the outcome, even if the authorities haven’t found any sign of the person yet. Also, most of the stories I read were incredibly bizarre as there seemed no plausible explanation as to how they could have disappeared.
I thought of a quick black and white illustration that would be loosely based on an actual missing person that I was reading about. I found I didn’t like the direction of the piece, so I started messing around with pens, pencils, and brushes, and came up with a couple of simple experiments using Photoshop.
