Skirt Magazine recently commissioned me to do the cover of their next magazine. They wanted to use an older piece of mine, but I'd sold the original and didn't have a high resolution scan of it to offer. So they asked me to repaint it, which I was happy to do because I liked that piece. I think it was an interesting exercise to see how one's style kind of moves around and evolves over time... still the same look and ideas, just slightly shifted maybe. Style with wiggle room. My drawing hasn't changed at all...and it probably won't. It just feels comfortable. :)

I've noticed that my colors are a little richer and thicker than they used to be. And backgrounds are bolder and have more texture... Feels a little more settled, maybe. Grounded.

Here's the previous piece I did last year:

and here's the new one coming out next month:
