New work, cover illustration!
When we lived in Vancouver, what feels like eons ago but was really about 11 years ago, for years my favorite Thursday thing was to go scoop a copy of the latest Georgia Straight. Everything entertainment plus loads of good articles and goodness about Vancouver and beyond. I remember scanning it for favorite bands that might be playing at the Commodore and finding the latest dance clubs, of course.
A friend recently alerted me that they were having a cover illustration challenge, so I just had to submit!
The overall theme is open but they suggested to think of Summer in Vancouver. I came up with this happy lovey gal, riding her bike on the seawall, playing happy tunes and enjoying the pink lemonade-y music festival days of summer.
I started it as a pencil sketch, then brought it into Procreate– what the heck would I ever do without Procreate, I swear!- where I created the colour art. Then I finished it up in Photoshop with some grungey textures, and off it went. Fingers crossed!
