NY Times: Death Valley
Here’s the latest for Joe Sharkey’s “On The Road,” a weekly travel column in the NY Times. As simple as they are, I had a hell of a time trying to get those “sun-ripples” to look anywhere near what I had in my head. Sometimes something that is so effortless in the sketch will totally stump me when I go into the computer. I am still experimenting with the sparing use of gradients in these. A little goes a long way! Thanks to Bob Goetz for the assignment!
