What's Yer Number, Cucumber? is a hand-drawn lettering piece that was started as part of an illustrated lettering workshop with Gemma O'Brien at Letter West in August 2017. I love rhyming sayings, and liked the idea of being able to draw a fun cucumber character. I started the piece in pencil on paper, then moved the different parts to tracing paper using pencil and ink. Once I had the elements planned out, I layered the pieces of tracing paper to plan my composition, then re-drew it over again on tracing paper. This was then brought onto the computer, digitized, and the composition was re-thought. The final digital image was colored, and now we see it today!
