Gabon Magazine Cover Illustration

Gabon Magazine contacted me to create a cover illustration for a special edition of the magazine to be distributed in China.  The issue was all about China/Gabon trade relations and they wanted the cover to portray this.  It was very interesting to learn a little bit about Gabon while creating the artwork.  It sounds like a very beautiful country with interesting animals and many natural resources.

The chosen cover image is of a Phoenix (a very positive Chinese symbol) holding a lucky coin.  The bird flys over a Gabon landscape highlighting some of Gabon's major trade assets (lumber and off shore oil).

It was a pleasure working with Mauro Perillo, the managing editor!

* The text on the above illustration isn't what was on the final printed version.  It was a general cover template I was given to design around.  But you get the idea.
