How I make a Traditional Illustration

I was commissioned to to a poster containing individuals involved with AKS youth National ski team and coaches in Istanbul, Turkey. There was to be an event with an unveiling of the Art and I was asked to contribute some "how I did it" information as part of the presentation. So, I'll offer it here to you. (The "8. Reverence" video shows me actually working, while the others are still photos only of the work in progress with audio explanation.)
