GQ Korea

Matt Damon cover

Next Image Title

Artist Name

Drawing of Matt Damon for the cover of GQ Korea. The drawing was based on a combination of two unpublished images taken during the photoshoot for the magazine's cover story. The drawing was done in pencil, then scanned and altered digitally to increase the contrast and density of the line. Since the art director decided to use bold black and white on the cover, I incorporated areas of solid black within the drawing (tie, shoes, folds) to create a balance with the heavy lettering.
