Editorial for Illustration 1- in progress


Here is some of the work in progress for my editorial assignment for Illustration 1. I did a rough pencil sketch and painted over it with gouache using references of snowy environments, Denver airport, and plump, delicious turkeys that I was able to devour this Thanksgiving! I still have yet to put the matting on this piece and will post when that is complete. "The New Yorker" print is out of date because I printed off a heading from an older magazine onto a transparency to get a better idea of how the editorial would look in finish- hopefully I can type in today's date if I figure out how to match the New Yorker's type font. Anyway, I spent a good solid and strait 7 hours working on this piece (faster than usual, but still exhausting) and am due for some sleep now. I'll be posting soon the final with a better photo as well.

just a little commentary on the nuisance of flying during the holidays, especially through places like Denver which always end up in delays due to the wonderful weather.
