Illustration was a solution often turned to when supplied photos just didn’t really cut it as an opening spread. I said that elsewhere, but you might not have seen it.
(Go have a read for not much more about that.)
Here, some nonchalant BMX dudes went on a trip and posed with a WW2 Jeep for some reason.
This was one of the first illustrations I did for Ride. When I was drawing it (actually tracing the original photo with paths in Illustrator) I intended to add fill colour to all the shapes, but it looked cooler with only specific shapes filled and everything outlined. I seem to have a lot of creative accidents that end up as final work. Is that normal?
