Airbrush and ink on board
Joseph Saffold’s illustration resembles an old photograph, an effect he achieved by using colored pencils and acrylic and oil paints applied with an airbrush. In the final stamp design, the rounded corners and black band at the bottom continue the concept by suggesting the appearance of a vintage trading card.
