And the sign said, “Long-haired freaky people need not apply.” So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why. He said, “You look like a fine, upstanding young man. I think you’ll do.” So I took off my hat and said, “Imagine that, huh? Me workin’ for you!” This was the song that popped up on my Norman Greenbaum Pandora Channel while I was brain storming for my letter H design. It was as easy as that. So, I’d like to take this time to thank Five Man Electrical Band for inspiring this piece.
Not only did the song talk about long hair, but hair starts with the letter h, so it’s really pretty fitting. For my design process, I wanted to keep it simple so I just stuck to pencil and paper.
#1 I began with a very rough comp on a post-it note that I drew with a pencil.
#2 To make it come to life, I used paper stock Universal 65 LB from a sketch book and Prismacolor pencils: White, Canary Yellow, Light Peach, Sienna Brown, and Dark Brown.
#3 After I finished drawing my design, I scanned my finished piece and here it is!
What do you think of it? I’d love to hear your thoughts, just leave them in the comments section below.
