I made this.
Here's a little job I did for work. It's my first illustrated cover for the magazine, and I'm really happy with how it printed. I was a little worried that the colors wouldn't print so well, but they turned out great. Our magazine rarely has illustrations, especially on the cover, so this was a special treat for me.
The concept was that it should have the feel of a cover to an old detective novel or pulp magazine without depicting the imminent demise of some "saucy dame". Of course, said dame still needed to appear on the cover, and we still needed the tension of those old books, so this is what I sketched up. I think it's pretty successful.
So, if you live in the Northern Ohio area, pick up a copy of Northern Ohio Live, on the stands now, and support my children. Come on, it's only 350¢!
