Kayak Issue #40: Titanic Spread
As I mentioned before I produced a two page spread for the most recent Issue of Kayak.
It is of the two otters (Teeka and Beau) exploring a shipwreck. I had a blast doing this though it does ad a bit of stress to designing the magazine as well as producing illustrations. But the truth of it is, it wasn't going to happen without the pressure. The illustration really didn't come together until I added the bubbles. Once those were added it really said "Hey, we're under water!" Which is great because prior to that the image looked like a bunch of fish with two otters floating in zero gravity.
I did the main illustration in illustrator with some colour correction and texture work in photoshop.
