I was recently comissioned by The Coup Magazine to do a lead in image for thier latest issue.
I was able to play with dimensions of the piece, hence the reason you see little variation between this sketch and the next.
Even though the Art editor liked this particular composition, she ultimately wanted something a little more simple but had a greater impact.
This is the work up of the final piece minus the font.
This is the final. Here your can see the entire idea realized. This was the first time I went the route of using font as part of my finished illustration. By introducing the font I was able to give the phrase "The Justice Issue" a double meaning.
