BYU magazine

For a piece about keeping spiritual commitments.
Art director was A.J. Rich.

Here were the roughs for the opener and 2 insides.

After exploring a bunch of compositions here's the tight sketch and color study I arrived at.

Finishes of the two inside pieces. My wife Shayna posed for the rain one.

Here's the spread in the magazine, I love how he ghosted it over.
I think A.J. is great tying it all together so beautifully, in fact I hired him a few years ago to do one of my typography intros on my website. Can be see at, they load randomly so you have keep reloading the page until you see his.
