Powell Street Pixels


  1. Hello Won, I really really really like your style, but would love to know a bit more about your technique. Do you freehand sketch in pencil first, then scan into Photoshop (or similar) and then add colour? Or do you use an iPad? If so then which apps do you use to simulate pencil, as I can't find one that looks good for my iPhone (I don't have an iPad).

    Do you sometimes use photos as reference, too? I sense that in this picture you've captured the moment your camera went on the fritz :o)

    Keep up the good work, and sometimes think about adding a few words to your images and tell us a bit more about the creative process.

    I only found your blog last week and visit daily, as it's very inspirational. Time to dust off the old pens, perhaps...

  2. Yes I use the good old pencil from a photo that I take on my iphone and sketch and color with photoshop. Recently I started to make drawings on my iphone using the brushes app and a stylus.
    I guess the sketches are meant to convey a brief moment in time and ultimately discarded...the sketches are meant to record quickly a place, feeling, weather etc.
    Also I like to have drawings that are close to my heart- mini coopers and sneakers to take a break from streetscapes.
    Thank you for following the blog.
