“Ain’t No Wifey” was drawn in a Strathmore watercolor book. The inspiration for this drawing came from Sktchy.

Most of the line work was done with waterproof ink, and then I re-stated some of the marks with water-soluble ink where I wanted it to bleed. I created the tones and washes with a water brush loaded with coffee.
