What a fun approach to using a simple color palette but getting a little more out of it with the MULTIPLY filter! Using the eraser to create new, loose spaces to work in also keeps the illustration from looking too tight. Great tips and brush suggestions! I love the texture you added at the end that really does resemble a screen print texture!
