I received a call to create this year's poster, and the client wanted something related to 'staying awake' and some cult movie imagery.
First I did some thumbnails with 2 ideas. One is a steam punk guy holding a clapper board with a blade attached. One of his hand is placed under the blade so if he ever falls asleep he will loose his hand. That same idea was carried to the final artwork. The second idea was a marathon runner running pass the cinema and a lot of cult movie characters came out trying to catch him.
I then did a more refined sketch. Now you can see the blade is in the shape of the guillotine and there's a whole for her to place the hand. Now the clapper is attached to a ring on her eyebrow, so she can free her other hand and her mouth to eat and drink.

There's beauty in it when you leave certain areas undone. An artist is not a copier, you should be able to decide what information to capture and what not. Don't be a slave to your reference instead become a master over your subject.

Here's a couple of illustrations I have created for children's history book. One is about the settlers' life in James Town and the other one is a plot from Sir Ivaine who was one of the round table knights of King Arthur.
And here are some of the close ups.
