This is the second Illustration I have created for Crimson Streets Magazine for their fiction anthology collection. My illustration accompanied the stories “Amnesty” and “Clemency”, both written by Chantal Boudreau. Both stories are a two-part sci-fi drama of Amnesty, the heroine vigilante who goes around defending and bringing justice to abused women, the homeless, elderly and other defenseless victims of abuse.
This story is a great read and is a clever take on the super-hero genre while discussing the difficult issue of domestic violence. The story is viewable on the website and will also be part of a printed hard copy anthology with my illustration on the cover! While working on this I got a chance to explore using gouache and digital painting to produce a Pulp Art look to the finished piece. It was definitely a labor of love and glad for the opportunity of creative freedom with this project.
