Wired Magazine Process Work

I had the opportunity to work for Wired Magazine earlier this year. The article was about the myriad of gaming platforms available these days making gaming all the more demanding and addictive. The client wanted an image that had a lot of movement and energy. I knew absolutely nothing about games and I only had less than 2 days to execute the image, but... the project sounded absolutely fun and so I jumped right on it.

Here were my initial concepts. I sometimes include notes with my sketches to my clients. You see this here.


The Art Director went with the head concept with the game elements surrounding it. Here's my process work from sketch to final:



I created two colour variations of the final illustration. The red one went to print.



Hope you enjoyed this post. Bye for now.

Cat Vogue: The Process


I thought you might be interested in the process work for Cat Vogue. When I drew the cat, I actually had no idea what I was going to do with it. Sometimes, it's nice to just go with the flow.
