The Elf Workshop (2010)
This artwork served as a holiday card that I gave to my girlfriend Whitney for Christmas 2010. In keeping with the trend of pestering Santa Claus during his busiest time of year, Whitney and I have broken into the North Pole workshop and decided to lend a hand, much to the displeasure of the elves. The illustration began as a hand-drawn sketch that was then scanned and vectored in Adobe Illustrator; shadows and highlights were added with the airbrush tool in Adobe Photoshop.
