June Cover ChickaDEE Magazine

CHK_JN13_cover

I recently had the pleasure of illustrating the cover for the June Food Issue of ChickaDEE magazine. Big thanks to Susan and her team at Owl Kids for the opportunity to work on this fun cover!

While working out ideas, I sketched out a few alternate fruit characters that didn’t make the final cut. Here are a few of them:

chick-june-sk05

chick-june-sk06

chick-june-sk07

chick-june-sk09

chick-june-sk08

We also did an alternate vignette that takes the place of the onion band on the newsstand version:

chick-june-sk03

The main character on the cover ended up being a girl, but we also tried out some other characters:

chick-june-sk01

chick-june-sk02

The June issue is on sale now!
