new work - cover illustration for Spirituality & Health Magazine

So excited to finally share this cover I did for Spirituality & Health Magazine! I worked with art director Sandra Salamony to come up with this idea based on the cover story of "embracing your stress" ... not all stress is all bad! In fact, sometimes it gives you super-human strength when you need it. So you can do stuff like lift elephants with one hand. :) Here's the final: penelope dullaghan - spirituality health cover illustration

And here are the sketches leading up to it:

Oh! And S&H asked me to be the featured artist and invited me to either send a photo of myself or do a self-portrait. So I did a self-portrait (using one of my patterns from my growing patterns library)! :)
