Process: Wired Italia Portraits, 100 Best Apps August 29th, 2012

Here are some portrait Illustrations on the special feature ’100 Best Apps’. Every category has a special guest who talked about their favorite apps: Arianna Huffington for news and reading, Christian Cantamessa for gaming, Fabri Fibra for entertainment, Tony Wheeler for travel, Lorenzo Thione for social networking, Jill Greenberg for photography and last but not least, Massimo Banzi for utilities. Phew. The colours in each portrait’s background match the colours of the spread. Once I got all the reference photos I finished these over a weekend. It was a great idea of the art director, Daniela Sanziani to pair up my black and white ink drawings with a brighter colour. I might even try this technique again. Thanks Daniela!

Thanks for the photos of the magazine my Italian Twitter/Facebook friends @ElenAndrea5 and Domenico Dom Barra! So nice to get a quick snap shot of a magazine that I can’t readily get in Canada.
