Digital Painting Process for Free Bird Café

One of the more challenging, yet exciting, aspects of the Map of Free Bird Café was the variety of art forms that went into making it. My process included interviewing Lisa Nesser, writing her story into cohesive anecdotes, drawing, digitally painting, and graphic designing. Below take a look at the process of digitally painting. This was done after I had hand drawn the main image of the map (on A0-sized paper) and had scanned it. This doesn't quite show the finishing touches, but it should provide a basic idea of what went into this step of making the map.
