Breaking out!

Here's from my last blog post.
A while ago my friend Steve B hooked me up with an illustration spot in Chart, which is pretty awesome. I did a two-page spread on 2007's Break-out artists. Here's some process work I sent to Steve as we corresponded through emails.
These are rough ideas I came up with on the feature.



Steve wanted to go with the third one, but the positions of some of the figures needed to be reworked. So I did a quick sketch to fix the composition and got the thumbs up!

The linear drawing before it gets coloured and rendered, or should I say "Loo'd".

The final piece can be seen in February's edition of Chart! Make sure to pick up a copy.

Hey Loo ...
Looks awesome ... I'm really interested to see the finals ...
Some of the artists I can point out ...some I'm not too sure ...
Wanna name a few of the artists?

Great composition, really dynamic. I think that taking the time to rework it really helped.

Thanks, guys!
The girl that looks like Emily Haines is really the lead singer of Di Mannequin, the frontman is Sebastian Grainger of former DFA1979, the far dude is Andrew Whiteman of Apostle of Hustle, the other three at the back are from Les Breastfeeders, and the far girl is from Land of Talk. Sorry to brag, but it kicks ass in colour!
