City Beat

Thanks for the reminder Christina!

Hey everyone, be sure to grab City Beat this week and check out the cover work I did. Also, Matt Hamby has a piece on page 22, so go grab yourself one before every single one flies off all the shelves in town!


  1. Nice job, Oliver!
    Man, you had to be burning the midnight oil on that one!

  2. Thanks, Chuck.
    Monday night was indeed a late night :) But I had a lot of fun with it and it was refreshing to have an assignment NOT too political or likeness-based.

  3. Nice work Oliver! I am kicking myself for not picking up a copy while downtown yesterday.

    Seems like a different style for you. Did you do the type treatment too?

  4. I thought the subject matter offered me a good opportunity to try a few things I had been away from for a while. It's not a direction I'm going to continue doing a lot of, but it was a good exercise that I learned some things from that I'm excited about. I'm trying to work line back into some of my stuff, so this was fun. City Beat is so great to work for 'cuz they allow that kind of creative freedom to try things. I love doing stuff for them.

    I didn't do the type. City Beat usually handles all of that stuff in my experience.
    Thanks for checking it out!

  5. Beautiful. If I could have drawn that well, I never would have left art.
