Chicago Hot Dog Illustration
This piece on the beloved Chicago-style hot dog is a hand-drawn and hand-lettered illustration. I started this on paper with thumbnails and ideas, then composed a final composition in a pencil sketch. Once I knew basically what I wanted it to look like, I inked the elements separately and brought them onto the computer for significant clean-up, straightening, and coloring. Once the items were vectorized, I could move them around and adjust the composition, finally arriving at the final piece.
