Illustration by Steven Hughes and Rachel Idzerda
I had the pleasure and rare opportunity of collaborating with another illustrator - the very talented Rachel Idzerda ( rachelidzerda ) - on a cover illustration for the Globe and Mail. While at the outset we both agreed on focusing on separate aspects of the image, it soon became a less simple division of labour as she helped shape my part while I helped shape hers.
This all came about (with many thanks to) Matt French, a Design Editor at the Globe and Mail. Rachel and I have both worked with Matt quite a bit, and he’s displayed a lot of faith in our abilities, without which this collaboration would not have been possible.
If you’re interested in seeing his great designs, awesome covers, plus new editorial illustrations from some great artists, then you should definitely follow him on tumblr: mattcfrench
