    This Rutu Modan has a similar style to my own. But, aside from the first image–which looks like it was colored with markers or lesser paints–the images look digitally colored while penned with ink and pencil by hand. I’d like to create an image as layered and complex as the rabbit tea/dinner party one, but my level of perspective and detail are a bit limited presently.
