Outdoor Life Magazine Illustrations

I created these 3 illustrations for the current issue of Outdoor Life Magazine. The art director was James Walsh.

Full page...


2 page spread...


Quarter page spot...



They were created as vector illustrations, below you can see some of my process.

Here are 2 of the pencils...



And some of the thumbnails ideas...




And some of the embarrassing reference shots-- I seem to always find a way to use a hockey stick and a cowboy hat in whatever illustration I do lately.
