A while back, I was hired a few times to draw the cover of the Montreal Mirror. A now defunct weekly paper. The Zombies here were the last time. The mayoral race [the guy on the far right won] fell on the same week as Halloween. As I recall the issue featured an article talking about the relative lack of new blood too. So you can see where this is going.
Original is 11″x14″ on smooth strathmore bristol, done in Ink, pens, and pencil for the tones. The blue comes from the under drawing printed out in light blue to work over. I then did the final colour work digitally.
The building is the Montreal city hall by the way, didn’t have to do much to make it look the part eh? Tree and cemetery are my bits though. Also fun detail, that’s MJ’s Thriller jacket on the guy on the left.
