May Cover for The Weekly Standard

I painted this cover last Thursday. Normally I would have had All day Thursday and Friday to complete this cover, but I had already planned a trip away with my family and we were leaving Thursday afternoon. I was asked to paint the cover around 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, so after my sketch was approved, I worked until 2:30 A.M. painting as much as I could. After a couple hours of sleep, I woke up and finished by Thursday afternoon, with enough time to shower, pack and head out on the road with the family. There wasn't much that was needed for me to paint for this cover, so that made making this deadline easier to achieve. If I had a little more time, I would have liked to paint in a bit more texture into the rocks, aging them a bit . . . that sort of detail is usually my favorite part.

Detail of face.

Planning a vacation is the best way to get work. I had to cancel a roadtrip last week, when I got a call that was too good to turn down...

HA! His face peeking through the wall gave me a great chuckle right off the bat. I'd say that's a successful illustration. Congrats!
