A continuation of the work on the illustrations based on lithographs Gottfried Kirchbach made almost precisely one hundred years ago! He made them in 1919, and I am re-drawing them, first in pencil and then in ink, in 2019. It feels very special to be able to communicate, in a way, with my ancestors. It's like they have become my mentors and teachers.
The images below are tonal studies done with pencil on A3-sized sheets of paper. These are the tonal maps I will use to guide me while I make the final pen and ink renderings.
