After I got back from a super awesome trip to Italy with some of the most amazing people in the whole wide world... I started seriously working on this project. This was about the end of September 2009. Funny because at the same time I decided to open a second store in Troy. While I was not scouring craigslist and driving Jorge's truck all around here and there picking up crap, I was finalizing the drawings for Philo & Sophy.
From here they got transferred to the Gessobords.
But not until after I spent about a week or two planning my color schemes in Photoshop.
You can see more of these preliminary sketches here.
