first of 08'

so its 2008. hence the title of the blog. this is the first finished bit of illustration i've done. its for the cover of the magazine "travis". the two main focus' of the month of february are "going green" (ways of becoming more earth friendly) and valentines day. the challenge was to synthesize the two to create an image that speaks of both.
im very happy with the way the final turned out and will post a jpeg of it when its placed within the context of the magazine.
s'all acrylic.

added recently is the in print version of the illustration. to really fit travis i worked into it digitally a bit and really saturated the colours. the whole idea is to make people want to pick it up.
its different from the origional in some ways but in alot of way i think its just stronger. hopefully it will be effective
