Magazine Cover Illustration
I started this Illustration with the intention of making it into a magazine cover, as I enjoy editorial and cover art, as it is one of my expertise. I chose to make this cover for a Fashion magazine. I wasn't so concerned about the painting itself but the actual structure of the magazine itself. My painting skills have not developed to what it is today but this still remains one of my most popular Illustrations due to its erotic beautiful natural looks.
I think the title "Iris" suits the design well. In Greek mythology, the goddess Iris was known as the personification of the rainbow and messenger of the Gods. I thought this was a perfect name because this imaginative magazine would touch on news and information on different things, including fashion, beauty, and even hot spots. I had in mind a magazine that would help you escape reality and fall straight into your fantasy.
