Just thought I would share the 2 illustrations I submitted for the recent cover contest for one of my favourite magaazines, Uppercase Magazine! They didn't win the cover spot, but I was notified that one of my illustrations was chosen to be included in Issue 40 coming out in mid-December! At this point though I'm not sure which of my 2 submissions was chosen!
The first theme was to celebrate the magazines 10th Anniversary in 2019 so my pairs of hands on which you can count to 10 are raised in celebration! Another of the requested themes was "maturity and longevity" so the botanical illustration depicts a plant as it grows through various life phases from seed to a variety of flowering blooms (kinda like how we all end up wearing many hats in our day-to-day lives, perhaps?)
Tell me which of the 2 you prefer...I know which one I like best!
Something a Bit Different For Me! An Editorial Illustration for a Magazine Article About the Environment!
This week's brief in FolioFocus 2108 was to create an editorial illustration using typography to accompany a magazine article about the need to act to address environmental concerns. Here is my illustration...something a bit different for me but I enjoyed the process! What do you think? Does it convey a message?
