I did the cover illustration for the latest issue of LA Weekly, and I'm super excited! The story was about the health effects of children who live in high rises near the freeway.
The illustration also appears on page 15 with the story.
Final illustration: (colorase, gouache and ink wash on Stonehenge paper mounted on museum board for integrity)
Original thumbnails: (On the theme of "the big bad wolf." Building next to a freeway is like building next to a beast... you sow the seeds of your own destruction. I really liked these but the concept was too abstract.)
Aaaand here it is in print! (Sorry for the poor quality photos.)
With original painting:
Check out Julian Callos's AMAZING illustration/visual column on page 10 of the same issue. Here is the LINK!
Thank you to Daniel Lim for hooking me up with the LA Weekly team, and to Jason Jones and Darrick Rainey of LA Weekly for their great direction.
