The Art of Al Rio
This image was a blue pencil prelim layout for
Al Rio's Tsunami relief donation art which can
be found by clicking the link above to his site
and typing 'Tsunami relief' into his search 
engine.  My 2nd Rio commission, this was my
first for my client Michael.  I elaborated on
the pencil art and then finished the image in
ink.  I used brush, markers, brush marker,
white & black ink spatter, razor blade 
scrapings, and dry brush.  I completed this
11 X 17 image on 5/31/05.
