|Craig Edwards by Graham Smith|
I illustrated this portrait of Art Director Craig Edwards for an article in St. Louis Magazine about his successful redesign of their magazine.
As an art director, Craig was not happy with how his existing head shots fit the layout, and asked me to draw a more flattering version for the article. I gave his portrait the "rockstar" treatment, punched up his faux hawk and gave him Burt Reynold's eyebrows. To make the portrait a bit more engaging, I changed the direction of his eyes to look directly at the viewer.
