Hunger Magazine Illustration 1

This was 1 of the illustrations I did for Rankin's Hunger Magazine.
It's a biannual music, fashion, culture and lifestyle magazine.
A 500 page mag full of everything artistic + celebrities (actors, musicians). Pretty cool stuff.
It's available all over Europe now and hits the States next week (late May, 2012)

They just launched their new site: [link]

I have 3 illustrations in there (I'll post the other 2 soon)

This was painted on Rives bfk paper
done with: Watercolor
Prismacolor Pencil
Water-Soluble Oil Pastels

I did some digital stuff, including helping mask off those painted shapes and color correcting.

Really fun project
I'll post more soon

Florence Welch is like, the only celebrity I've found to be my doppelganger. So *naturally* I think this is excellent. =)

This blows my mind. It isn't often I see a piece of traditional work and have no idea how the artist went about creating it. Honestly, it looks digital. I'm incredibly impressed - you are so ridiculously talented. Radical work and grats on the magazine!

um, you're awesome too

This. is. truly. fucking. amazing...
Love the colours, the mixture of traditional (I can see the brushstrokes) and digital (the finement of it all). A real outstanding piece! deserves to be in an awesome magazine like that :)
