Pencil sketch for the back and front cover of Cricket magazine. This sort of assignment is so much fun to me. They call me, give me some idea of what they'd like to have included in the illustration and then let me get busy creating something. In this case, Cricket called and said- "We've got and issue that will contain Dizzy Gillespie, space travel, Albert Einstein's violin and Mozart's cat. We think your work is wild enough to encompass all these- can you do it?" I said yes, of course and got busy making this. I'll post the final art tomorrow. Peace out, Matt. Pencil, 2001.
