The Chimp Haven Project: Final Thoughts

Here's the revised layout of the illustrated Chimp Haven project for SB Magazine. This helped me establish the final layout of the illustration.

 I decided to incorporate an illustrated drop cap to lead into the article. (See above)

Here it is: the final illustration. I was really proud of the final result. Matt Beckham did a fantastic job with the coloring and Amy Lyons wrote a great article. In hindsight, I think that there's too much text. I had done many editorial cartoons and illustrations for SB Magazine, but this was the ONLY time that I got the opportunity to illustrate an ENTIRE article. It was a great artistic challenge and a lot of fun.
