Midwest Living Magazine Cover

Recently, I had the opportunity to illustrate the cover for the May/June issue of Midwest Living. I'm a big fan of all things Midwest so it was a real honor to get my work on the front of such a cool magazine! I'm still kind of freaking out about it, but a huge thanks goes out to Meredith Publishing and Creative Director Kylee Krizmanic. 

Let's jump right into the process, shall we? The initial idea was to create a modern take on traditional National Park posters (what I do best!) using either Michigan's Isle Royale or Nebraska's Chimney Rock. We also explored a cover made solely of park patches along with the idea of placing a hiker in the foreground of the first images.

   

 

 

 

Ultimately, we decided to move forward with the first Isle Royale-inspired sketch and I started to develop the composition a bit further. The silhouetted hikers immediately got bumped to the left in order to have a better eye line and flow.

 

After some back and forth we continued to tweak and push the color palette a bit and until we landed on the final cover. More space was freed up in the center to make way for text and cover lines. I really think we nailed it and I love our modern take on the final art. 

Again, I can't thank Kylee and her team enough for such a sweet gig. It's super cool to see my work in print like this and hopefully you'll be seeing more magazine covers from me in the future.

 

 

Four Eyes Foto Hyperlapse

My good friend Cullen Powers from Four Eyes Foto visited my studio a while back and made this sweet, sweet Go-Pro hyperlapse of me laying down the 3rd color on my DSM Sculpture screen print. The Bozz Prints studio is a pretty tight space with a low ceiling, so big props to a 6'8" Cullen for braving the hazardous conditions. In all we cranked out about a 100 prints in an hour, but luckily for you it only lasts 2 minutes. Man, I wish I could print that fast.
