Here is my most recent published editorial illustration, pretty cool to see it in print!
The article stressed that sometimes the music played in Seattle's restaurants was every bit as important as the food itself. It effects both the atmosphere and style the restaurant is trying to brand themselves as. It was really fun to try and come up with idea that merged these two seemingly very different things into a concept. Ultimately, we decided that using a chef to "prepare" the music was a good way to stress that point!
Below are some of my earlier sketches of the concepts that didn't make the cut.
This is what I would refer to as my first layer of "paint". Then with each new layer I get tighter and tighter until I am happy with the final!
