Vegas Seven: Nip & Tuck

Nip & Tuck

Ben from Vegas Seven got in touch and asked if I would be interested in doing a cover for them on the subject of plastics and electives ((plastic surgery and aesthetics to you and me). They were not looking for a typical plastic surgery cover but were thinking more along the lines of a vintage Sci-Fi like take.

From the off the description and subject matter gave this the feel of a dream job. Having said that it is a sensitive subject and so I wanted to avoid anything too repellent but at the same time was looking for something thought-provoking. I came up with this image which felt about right. The sketch was well-received and after a tonal version was worked out it was then a case of choosing a nice colour palette and producing the final (click sketches below to view).

In this case the original is not too different but I was drawn to realise it in monochrome rather than the full colour treatment the client requested.

Straighten Up

From my earliest days as an illustrator and working with Rotring pens I was always attracted to tone being rendered through points. I like the inherent contradiction of softness being created through something so hard. This enlargement (click image above to view) is a good representation of an area I would like to explore further.
