Mindful Parenting Magazine
I worked with Mindful Parenting to illustrate the cover of their May 2020 issue. I was extremely excited to be offered an opportunity to do a cover.
I had been adding artwork to my portfolio that included people and children, in order to show that I could do editorial work.
I wrote my email pitch and started approaching art directors. I tried to keep my hopes realistic. After all, it's not like someone was going to get me to do a cover, but hopefully a couple of spot illustrations would come my way.
The very next day, I got an email from Mindful Parenting Magazine. The artist they had lined up for the next issue was unavailable and would I like to do it? YES! I would!
They sent me a fab brief and a contract and I got to work creating some concepts. Once they had chosen their preferred sketch, I created some colour roughs for them before painting the final artwork.
