I was asked to produce a set of illustrations for a new magazine here in the UAE called HYPE. It’s a music magazine and the article I was asked to illustrate was a guide on how to become a DJ. The art editors had a specific style in mind, a style I’d not tried before, so that made doing the illustrations a fun and interesting challenge. I spent a bit of time playing around and experimenting until I found a way to reproduce the style they were looking for and I’m very pleased with the finished work. As a freelance illustrator, it’s important to be able to fulfill a set brief and the more ways of working you become comfortable with, the easier your job becomes.
