#206 Exaggerated Features
I can finally reveal the cover I did for the winter 2009 Exaggerated Features Quarterly caricaturist magazine put out by the International Society of Caricature Artists.
The theme of this piece was "a day at work drawing caricatures in a theme park."
This is what I turned into the A.D.
....And below is how the cover appeared after printing, The only change the Art director (the wonderful and classy Debbo Burmeister) made was the font and punctuation in the word balloon.
For this piece I got out of my comfort zone and used a acrylic wash technique mixed with brush pens for the line work. I wanted to produce a piece that was layered, loose and lively with a watercolor feel. I was a little nervous turning this in because I know many of the members of the ISCA are big fans of the superclean tight digitally rendered look, but now that I see it in print I'm pretty happy with the final product . I just wanted to do something a little different and I hope I accomplished that.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think:)
