Illustration Technique
By Wilfred Bauknight and Mike Blanc


Wilfred Bauknight sent home many letters and postcards that included his illustrations while on active duty in the Philippines in 1945-6. Wilfred was an engineer, skilled in draftsmanship. The illustrations he included with his correspondence look like they were “engineered” - a lot of detail!

 

Mike Blanc’s illustrations for the story compliment Wilfred’s postcards with paintings in two categories: sepia toned to represent the recollections of Grandfather’s past, and full color to depict the present. The paintings were produced with Corel® Painter™ digital painting software for artists.
