Macleans illustration, coming to a newsstand near you!
Here's a little sample of one of my latest jobs, the obituary illustration on the back page of Macleans magazine. It's published in their June 28th, 2010 issue. I've done about half a dozen of these, but this is the first one in a while. I get a particular kick out of doing them because my mom get a subscription and there's nothing cooler than getting your artwork published in a magazine that your mom reads!
I also love the stories of people's lives. Creating images to accompany and augment amazing stories is one of the reasons I love editorial illustration. For me, the more information and details I get to work off of, the happier I am.
