The Artist

illustrated biography of leon Trotsky

The life, and death, of the Russian revolutionary.

Hand drawn, then edited and coloured in Photoshop.

(Below) Original sketches, showing how the finished page is made up of a number of components.

The sketches are scanned and compiled in Photoshop. In this instance the drawings of Trotsky and Lenin were flipped. I preferred the illustration to go from top-left to bottom-right, with space for the text in the top-right of the page. The page flowed better that way.
