One client I always enjoy working for is Kids VT, a free family newspaper based out of Burlington. So when they asked if I'd illustrate the cover for their technology issue, I was glad to do it. They wanted to highlight the educational uses of technology, specifically iPads or other tablet devices.
When possible, I like to submit really tight roughs so the client knows exactly what to expect and there aren't any last-minute surprises. As you can see, the sketch was approved with only minimal changes needed, so I was able to put more energy into the inks and colors. I was a bit nervous about that monochromatic background, but decided to go for it.
Below you can see the initial sketch, then the finished artwork with the logo and other text elements added, and then finally a photo of the finished product:
