Process to Design Black & White Graphics

I begin by making an outline of the image with a light box and a sharpie marker. I move slow to make sure the lines are clean and consistent. Also it's important to connect the intersecting lines at this stage so when I transfer it to vector I'm able to pull my corners easier.

Next, I block in parts of the image in solid black to compose a balanced image.


Then, I add the remaining detail before it is made into vector shapes.


This is the final, vector image ready for print.
