I've been meaning to make another neon-colored illustration to be a companion for this other one. I didn't have any ideas that felt the right amount of related-but-different, for a while. Then, a friend of mine sent me a photo of a veiled mushroom, and I knew it would be perfect and a bit maddening!
I did a few thumbnails and then an initial drawing at scale in pencil. Then, I used my glass-top kitchen table and a lamp as a light table to do the illustration on a fresh piece of paper. Fun, a little crazy-making, and occasionally a real puzzler.
