IF "Subterranean"


For this week's Illustration Friday theme, I tried texturizing the paper beforehand with gouache and saran wrap to create an "earthy" look. I thought about moles because we often see their trails in the yard after the snow melts. I picture a lot of little creatures stirring from their subterranean winter naps and making their way up to the light of day.
