This is a cover illustration I created for the Kirkland Performance Center. Every year when they release their new season of shows they publish an issue of their Ovation magazine. For this cover, the tagline is "Family Matters Here" and they wanted an image showing performers thanking the audience. KPC had a pretty solid idea of what they were looking for, but I sketched a few different designs just to give them options.
They liked both sketches A and B, so I did tighter drawings to flesh out the details and compositions.
The client chose design A, so I did two quick color studies...
And then painted up the final amd KPC performed their graphic design magic and there you have it!
