This was an editorial illustration done recently for the cover of Library Journal. The issue was expanding on their recent ebook summit where they hosted their first-ever virtual summit on ebooks. It was an all-day think tank with sessions, commentary on ebooks, their future, how libraries have to deal with them, and what to expect. After speaking with the art director, conceptually we thought librarians trying to rope down an ebook (taking some inspiration from Gulliver's Travels) to represent the challenge libraries will have with getting some control over ebooks in the very near future would make for a compelling cover image. It was a fun cover illustration to work on and Kevin was great to work with over at Library Journal.
materials used: pen and ink, textures, and adobe photoshop.
