Las Vegas Weekly Cover

This image was for the cover of Las Vegas Weekly. The feature was about Nevada losing its edge - through roughs i realized that a guillotine blade with a broken edge looks EXACTLY like the state of Nevada and is perfectly clear for the concept of losing an edge. What an amazingly fortunate coincidence. Above is the image (cropped a bit) and i'll post the cover image with the text and title asap - still 100% painted. Below 4 of 11 rough ideas. Thanks so much to Ryan, great to get to work with you! More soon
turning down the vegas sign - "W" doubles as a dimmer switch
talked about the influx of Republicans to the state - thought it would be a neat image to be "shuffling" the two parties together
starts edgy - ends conservative
broken heel
