Lichtenstein anyone?

Commission from illustration rally to do a Roy Lichtenstein illustration. I'm a big fan of Lichtenstein/ Warhol era of pop art, huge colour palettes, comic book style and the graphic recognisable art that they were so famous for.

I've added my process which led to my final illustration.

Girl drawn with a white background and speech bubble

Added blue background

Experimented with Lichtensteins' signature dots and lines technique

And this is my final illo, what do ya think?! It had to be Lichtenstein inspired, contain Ireland somewhere in the image and could basically be whatever I like. I chose to illustrate two of my favourite things- TEA and ILLUSTRATION. I used a colour palette with a pop art feel, included the signature girl (in Lichtensteins pieces), speech bubble, wham/bam styled exclamations and the dots and lines patterns featured on the face to create a comic book look.
