Hello, hello! Or I should say “Bonjour!”, given the spread I am displaying below is of the winter carnival (Carnaval de Quebec) held in Quebec City, Quebec each winter. I illustrated this for the December 2011 issue of Chirp magazine this past summer. It was a fun albeit intricate piece to pull together. And if you are familiar with the carnival, you may notice a key figure missing–Bonhomme Carnaval. This was due to copyright issues, so generic clowns took his place in the end. But I did include the beautiful Le Chateau Frontenac, in the upper right part of the spread.
So below is the original spec/sketch from the client…
…And the final spread (after shuffling and moving things around) in the magazine. For a larger view, please click on the image.
And a few random close-ups, below.
