Cover of a Cover

I have a ton of magazines that I have yet to read. When I buy these guys, I have every good intention of reading the magazines from cover to cover. But what happens most of the time is that they make their way onto a stack of other magazines that I have yet to read and as life happens, they just sit there. While doing the laundry today, I figured I’d finally start hacking my fat-ass pile of lovely mags.

This issue of Bon Appetit was the travel issue from May 2018. Beautiful food, photos, and writing all around, of course, and before I could even finish the cover story, so inspired by the article, I whipped out my travel palette and water brush and began drawing the cover, and I really like how it turned out. The things I like were all unintended, and I have my water brush to thank for all of it, really.

So, I finished the drawing and I finished the laundry, but as far as finishing the rest of the issue, I forgot about it until now, which leads me to my new resolution:

Until my all of current magazines are read and appreciated, no new magazines!
