This is the illustration that i came up with for the postcard art request of Tom Wolfe. Tom's campaign is to ride with Lance Armstrong in kitchener on Aug 28th for cancer research. As Tom and many others have said, "cancer has affected us all" so for my illustration i went for an approach of loved ones who have passed cheering on a bike rider. It is a pretty literal approach to the assignment but I when brainstorming it was the idea I though would work best. I have supplied two versions of the piece one with a lens flare and one without. I am leaning toward the one with the flare but i was wondering what others think. so if you have a second let me know! I started the piece in Corel Painter and went for a somewhat coloured storyboard look then finished off the rest in Photoshop.
Thanks for checking it out
