This is the up-coming cover of Scout & Engineer I designed and illustrated, It was a rare chance to not only execute one of my favorite motifs (an old wall surface with attached drawing), but to determine the final placement and look of the logo. It was a wonderful opportunity to try out a complete idea with virtually no stylistic obstacles.
In this particular issue, the literary collection is themed around "Heroism" and the publisher/creative director was enthusiastic about this direction, once we chatted over the possibility of taking a non-literal approach. I've been looking forward to utilizing this style of work for quite awhile.
Thank you, Hannah, for taking a daring approach.
NOTE: You may remember the first one I did; a confident Eve unapologetically displaying the Forbidden Fruit (posted December 23, 2011).
