Wonka Vision Magazine "Summer Music Festivals, 2010" Illustration

Hi-O! Recently did an illustration for the newest issue of Wonka Vision Magazine coming out in mid April. It'll be on the inside back cover. The accompanying text spotlights a bunch the cool upcoming Summer Music Festivals around the country, including Chaos in Tejas, Rain Fest, Maryland Death Fest, Long Island Hardcore Fest, Sound and Fury Festival, This Is Hardcore, Pitchfork Music Festival, Bonnarroo and The Vans Warped Tour. Check out the links for more info.

This was inspired by, amongst other things, 70s rock posters ( u know, babe on a beast style), and added an oddball outdoor rowdy crowd, a hippie alt punk scene. Got a vision of a Black Rabbit in my head and couldn't shake it so...

Oh, and here's a VIDEO i made showing the process from sketch to final.
I started with traditional pencils and inks, then scanned it
and applied digital coloring and effects.
