Escapo, Ink, Gouache, Digital
My entry for the Escapo poster contest hosted by Destroy Comics/Z2 Comics.
Probably the longest I’ve spent on any one illustration since I wanted to try something different. Lots of influences here: Pope (obviously), Yuko Shimizu, old magic posters, James Jean (those little heads are a reference to a work of his), and a little bit of Jack Kirby.
Edit: Made a little change to the text at the bottom
