And so, my face, well the back of my head to be exact, has made it to page 23 of the issue mentioned above. Although my name was not printed bellow my photo, I'm still very excited to have made it in. There was a cool shot of my hand working on my thumbnail sketches in my moleskine that never made it to the final copy of the magazine, but I did get to see it during the preliminary stages of page layouts for the article. As I had mentioned in June, this painting method required four steps; the thumbnail studies, drawing the final composition on to the painting surface, applying transparent washes of color on top of the drawing, and finishing with thicker layers of paint. In the photo above, I'm on stage three of the process. Bellow you can see the final result.
