I recently did the cover of Westword, a weekly newspaper in Denver. The feature is about a local developer who is being sued as a result of problems in his buildings.
The art director had the concept and composition pretty much nailed down when he contacted me, so there wasn’t much interpretation on my part. I mostly shifted things around a bit to be able to see the guy’s face a bit more, and tried to put as much character in the face and hands as possible. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. - J
