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
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
