I recently discovered that the town I live in has an annual Butterfly Festival. This gave me great inspiration and I quickly got to work drawing. Mariposa, California (the name means butterfly in Spanish) is not only famous for it’s butterflies but also as the gateway to Yosemite National Park. This gave me lots of imagery to call upon. In my first drawing, I incorporated Yosemite’s iconic Half Dome into the picture. Here’s a video of the drawing process and the finished image which I have turned into a poster.
