Summer Issue 2018
The magazine’s art director wanted an illustration that showed how athletes from all different sports and backgrounds were being drawn to triathlons. We went through several drafts, changing out and shaking up the sports represented, always with an eye to diversity and gender equity. The final draft went all the way to the magazine’s publisher for a final okay, because photography is so often a mainstay of their cover art.
Winter Issue 2020
I was pleased to be asked back for an assignment with USA Triathlon Magazine, this time to illustrate the cover of their Technology Issue. The story is about how multi-player games, online training apps and social networking are all changing the world of triathletes. I was very proud of how this super-detailed illustration came out and how it, hopefully, draws readers into the magazine.
