A series of illustrations for the ‘perfect penalty’. I was aiming for the slightly-musty-training-manual-found-in-a-second-hand-bookstore look.
They were commissioned for Men’s Fitness magazine which was my first regular editorial illustration gig. Working on the same title every month allowed me to develop my process and style. I learned how to take a brief, confirm the schedule and budget, create sketches and send them to the Art Director for feedback and approval before proceeding to final art. I was a contributor for 4 years and created several hundred illustrations for them over that time. Many thanks to the wonderful Art Director Tania Simanowsky for giving a young illustrator a chance!
