Original colortype 'Chance of a Lifetime': Brian Andreas


Original colortype 'Chance of a Lifetime': Brian Andreas

I often go through several versions of a story, each time distilling it until I get to the final version. What you may not know is that quite a few times I'll do a production master of one of the earlier versions.

That's what this is, the first version of the current production print Chance of a Lifetime. It's done as a colortype in ink & gouache watercolor. Notice how the later version strips the story down to its essentials...
