CA Competition Entry

A few hundred moons ago when I started my degree in Graphic Art, my professor, Mr. John Agars, introduced me to Communication Arts Magazine. I started my subscription then and now have almost entire bookcase dedicated to the copies I’ve collected. I’ve always wanted to be featured in Communications Arts. One of the ways I might get into CA is to win their Illustration Annual Competition. Looking over last year’s projects this editorial illustration I did for an article about innovation was one of my favorites. So, I made it my entry for this year. With any luck the judges will gush over its wonderful simplicity.
