Collaborated with the talented Brett Bolton to create the LV Weekly's 2017 "Best Of Vegas" cover. The Weekly wanted to take this a few steps beyond a typical cover design, so I ended up designing and creating a 4' x 5' painting which we would then photograph and have Brett 3D model and animate. The final deliverables were the commissioned painting by myself, the 3D-mapped and animated version of the painting by Brett, and then captured a still image of Brett's animation that (with the help of a few additional elements, and our other talented buddy, Ian Racoma) would be used as the final cover for the issue. This became one of my favorite projects of 2017 due to the complexity and uniqueness of all of the moving parts of this project.
