As I was learning to paint in Illustrator I delveloped a fun habit of posting screenshots of early stages of the artwork on social media, to see if my friends could guess the subject of the painting. I thought his many fabrics and textures would be an interesting study, and his shape would make it hard for friends to guess his identity.
Once he was completed I asked for ideas for his caption, and created a card for Etsy. Similar to Dumbledore, Arthur was removed from Etsy in 2018 for copyright issues.
