Pittsburgh City Paper

Here is a cover illustration I recently completed for the Pittsburgh City Paper. The article was about people leasing out their private land for natural gas wells, and how they immediately regretted that decision, as the drilling was ruining their land and their lives. It was a quick and enjoyable assignment. Thanks Lisa!

Below is the initial sketch with the copy layered on top.

This week I also came across a great figure drawing group at the Tojo Gallery in Wicker Park. I was particularly fond of the model's gesture in this first 5-minute pose and embellished it a bit in photoshop.
