I was showing some of my older work to my intern recently, and came across a piece I did years ago for Maxim Singapore.
I enjoyed working on this piece and I really liked how it came out. Over the years it fell out of my portfolio because I was told that it didn’t match the rest of the stuff I did.
Lately though, I think my work is going back to focusing on shape and color, and less on tone. And so, I just had fun tweaking the original art to remake it for something I think looks kinda neat for 2014.
Here’s the original spread. Never liked the dude on the right so I just removed him. I never get spread illustrations anymore – They are fun to work on. Well sometimes anyway. I would like more fun editorial stuff like this. Illustration gods hear me and answer my (half-baked) prayers!
