Lets talk about Sex...

TOM - This week I got the chance to do the cover for New York Press. They are introducing a new sex column, which is actually very entertaining and funny (and raunchy!) and so this issue kicked it off. The art director and I came up with a bunch of ideas for the cover and the interior illustration, and ultimately, these were the two that got picked. Process: Usual brush and ink on vellum bristol, scanned, colored in Photoshop.

Were these the colors you mentioned? Or is this a direct scan from the newspaper?

Thanks Hilary!
Edowyn - It's actually a quick photo of the paper itself. I'm going to scan it today.

Cover of NY Press--a gig you can be proud of. Great illustration, but there's plenty of congratulation already here, you don't need to hear it from me.
