This editorial illustration for Australian Gourmet Traveller magazine was about how the role of travel agent has evolved into rather one of a "travel advisor" in this digital age. I decided to portray the travel agent as a guru, font of all travel knowledge that has access to all areas.
Brainstorming a few ideas after reading to copy sent to me.
Some word association and mind mapping to get the creative process going.
Very handy having a tradesperson close by on the day to model for me!
Pencil roughs that were sent to client to sign off the concept.
Adding colour and texture in Photoshop to the hand drawn linework I scanned in.
