Thinking Big

Check out the latest cover we designed and illustrated for WIRED. This was an awesome project to work on. We had the wonderful experience to work onsite with the senior editorial staff in the creation phase of this design. It all came together very fluidly and was a blast to illustrate. Try and grab a copy on the newsstand because the final printed product is almost entirely composed of neon inks! We mixed process color yellow and magenta into the neon ink to get a richer and more opaque look in certain areas of the illustration. Overprinting spot colors with process colors isn't something you see very often these days. WIRED is one of the last large circulation publications to still do this kind of high quality printing. The production staff at WIRED expertly package the files for press and the final product printed beautifully. Go check it out, it's guaranteed to be the loudest thing on the newsstand!
