Cover Illustration for The Source Weekly

Innovation of YouthI had the opportunity to illustrate the 2nd cover of 2009 for our weekly rag – The Source, which comes out today. The theme for this week – “The Innovation of Youth”. This is my second cover illustration for these guys, the first was for the launch of their, then, brand spankin’ new logo, which I designed about a year ago – the theme for that one was “Ghost Towns”. Both illustrations were completed using Adobe Illustrator, my weapon of choice. I have yet to warm up to a wacom, but perhaps one day. The mouse works great.

Mmm, I just had an everything bagel w/ cream cheese with a cup of coffee. The best everything bagel ever was the one from H&H on the upper east side in NYC. So good. The lox spread was on fuego.

For this issue I was able to integrate the headline and sub head into the illustration – when it comes out I’ll snap a photo and post it. I used an old favoritve Geometric 885.

Off to the studio.

    I admire your homage to trepanation.
