Today the annual “List of Lists” issue of VITA.MN magazine drops on newstands. I have been fortunate to have worked on this great local magazine for a few years now. Recently art director, Leslie Plesser moved on from the publication to enter the world of freelance. I was sad to see her leave as she has been one of my favorite people to work with ever, but thankfully her replacement Holly, has been awesome right from the get go. I look forward to doing more projects with her.
This annual topic has had a superhero theme cover for a while. This year we decided to have some fun and do a nice homage to the old Flash VS Superman comic races. It was a real blast to channel my inner Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and dig out some old Justice League comics for inspiration. Hope you dig it.
On top of doing the cover and the intro page to the main article, I also did the ad for the yearly August Music & Movies series at Lake Harriet. It was really fun to illustrate several characters from some of my favorite movies of my childhood. There’s more to come with this job as the ad will change every week with more focus on the specific movie playing on that date. So stay tuned!
