Right before the holiday break I got the opportunity to work on a new cover illustration for Minnesota Monthly Magazine. I had done some animations for Bloomington, Minnesota last year and believe that is where they first saw my work. I am so fortunate to get to do what I do every day. Being able to live in the photography and the art world is super important to me. I love being able to use so many different skills on a project. I have included a few process shots along with the final cover of the magazine. The piece ended up being around 17X22. I usually build the entire piece, then take it all apart and shoot it in layers. I then reconstruct the piece digitally just as I did three-dimensionally. That way I can change sizes of things easily without having to re-build to many pieces.
