I love this week's Illustration Friday topic: phobia. Looking around for ideas this morning I spotted our faux antique phone, which reminded me of my own borderline phone phobia. So, I photographed it using available light.
Then I cropped and photoshopped it slightly (see directly below) and printed it in greyscale using a black and white laser printer.
Next I drew a grid pattern on the print and coloured a few random squares (but not the phone) with various types of pens and pencils.
After that I cut the grid into pieces and glued them randomly onto a piece of pink construction paper.
I scanned the collage, cropped and photoshopped it a little more and voila: an illustration of the anxiety I used to feel as a child when faced with the telephone.
