For the last 4 months I have had the opportunity through making a contact with Gallery Magazine in Jersey to do some illustrations for the magazine based on a number of articles.
Each month I am sent a couple of articles from Russ at Gallery magazine which I read through and then come up with some ideas for illustrations to accompany the article.
This piece of work was for an article called 'Fitness For Really Tough Manly Men' and upon reading the article I picked out some elements that I thought I could work with.
There was a piece in the article that mentioned how men used to model themselves on George Best or Charlton Heston, so from this I decided to make an illustration of a man down the pub looking up to a George Best picture dressed in his United kit.
To accompany this illustration I also created a bed spread based on Hulk Hogan with a signed picture of Chuck Norris under the bed, another extract from the article that I worked on.
Working for Gallery has been a refreshing challenge for myself and having my work printed up and put out to the public of the Channel Islands is very rewarding and I hope to do more in the future like this.
