Here's my latest illustration for work. It accompanies an essay about a stay-at-home dad (the writer) whose wife discovers a giant black bra in his diaper bag. Hilarity ensues.
I'm happy how this turned out, though this is the second version. I did a watercolor version first to change things up a bit and get away from the clean, digital stuff. I really loved it too, until I scanned it and placed the file on the page and it looked awful with the story. My scan was really bad, and no matter how many times I scanned it (different settings each time) it still turned out crappy. So I did a clean, digital version and It looks alright.
I'm also happy that I'm able to do this once in a while for the magazine. It helps keep things interesting. If you wanna see it in print, with the text all wrapped around it and awesome, look for the July issue of Northern Ohio Live on stands...now I think. I just got a copy today, so I think it'll be out today, or maybe Monday.
P.S. If you need a t-shirt click on the cool Bountee flash thing over there in the sidebar. I'm working on new designs all the time.
