Arab American Portraits

Carus Publishing, Cobblestone

I had a rather long involved project for one of my children’s magazine clients in January. This was a series of portraits of prominent Arab-Americans, two to a page, upper left and lower right corner in most cases, with a large collage for the splash page. Each portrait needed not only the face of each subject, but some sort of vignette to go with it to help illustrate who each person was. I decided to do this one in a little different style than I usually do, working primarily in watercolor washes.
