The ABCs of Blood for Owl Magazine
Posted 1 week ago and submitted by Alana McCarthy | Share link:

My four page spread illustrating the ABCs of Blood for the October issue of Owl Magazine. Art director Faith Cochran wanted a B-movie poster feel to the images. So I created the finals with a rough painted texture as well as dramatic lighting. The challenge was to make the illustrations scary, but not too scary for the magazine’s young audience. I really enjoyed this project as natural science and teaching kids new facts are some of my favourite subjects to work on.
