The background of this collage is 1 of 3 drawings I made of my living room in 2003. My pencil drawings were made using the blind contour technique, where I looked at what I was drawing, but not the paper I was drawing on. I later looked at the paper while rendering the images in ink.
In 2011, I collaged the image with that of a turtle I drew for panel art in my 2009 comic Flying Solo. I used white acrylic paint to do this and then added some extra line detail with a pen.
