'The Writing on His Wall'

This is an image I created for a workshop in Illustration at the Art Academy in San Francisco. The topic was San Francisco History. Whenever I go to San Francisco and see the bridge, this part of it's history inevitably crosses my mind. It is so vast and dramatic to begin with. Depending on cultural influence, people have very different reactions to this subject matter. This thought is related to the title. After the pencil layout was done, which was the most time consuming part of this image, I created the digital painting in my hotel room on my powerbook using a wacom tablet. the actual photoshop painting took from 6pm to 2 am, one of my fastest renderings ever. Can't wait to get my hands on that 12" Cintique!
