|FF: Tell me the
medium--its magic marker and colored pencil?
Peter DeFreitas: Yes, its a Letraset Pantone tri-nib marker, and there are three different widths of tips on the marker, so I can get a much wider brush, and they also have finer tips. And then theres a pencil crayon that I use. What I do with the pencil crayon is just give it more definition. There are only maybe three or four colors that I actually use in the pencil crayon, unless I dont have the color in the marker. And what Im doing with the marker is, Im really treating the marker like watercolor.
Peter DeFreitas: I was teaching a fashion illustration course at one of the colleges here in Toronto, and what I started to realize is that a lot of illustrators still do use watercolor, but what Ive been noticing is that what markers are is like the modern version of watercolors.
Peter DeFreitas: Ive always wanted to use watercolors, but Ive never given myself the opportunity to really develop that. And so Ive just become accustomed to using the marker.
