Amy’s illustrations are digital drawings resembling stained glass panels. Her process begins with conceptual drawings that are then hand-drawn with pencil and subsequently inked with Pigma Micron pens. Each intersection between lines is contoured to resemble leading between stained glass panels. The drawings are then scanned and completed in Photoshop using the computer to "paint" the colors and textures from the stained glass into each "pane" within the drawing.
