I was asked to do this illustration of country music star, Tim McGraw, for The Agenda section of the May issue ofAtlanta Magazine. The agenda announces his concert on 5/12 and reads, “Tim McGraw was crowned “country music’s first metrosexual” by fashion bible W Magazine, but your assured to see plenty of tough-guy swagger when his “Two Lanes of Freedom” tour stops at Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood.”
I had a great time working on this assignment! I’ve always had a soft spot for twang and cowboy boots so this was a lot of fun. Below, you will see some of the other preliminary sketches, including the one that was picked. I think that the western saddle leather background motif is a nice touch. Enjoy!
