I worked with StarChefs to illustrate a cover for their Austin/San Antonio edition of Rising Stars, a publication and award that celebrates regional upcoming chefs doing excellent work. I presented five different concepts embodying the food scene in Austin and San Antonio, and we landed on one involving the profusion of cool neon signs around here, highlighting the brightness and cultural background of this awesome region. This was a digital illustration with some traditionally-illustrated elements (the cow and the TEXAS were done in gouache and watercolor), and was printed on their magazine as well as event signage. I also attended their amazing gala for the event and had the opportunity to try food by incredible local chefs. Hands down one of the coolest projects I've ever done!
