Pickup artists for New York Magazine

Pickup artists for New York Magazine

New York Magazine was one of those magazines I’ve always wanted to work with and I finally had the chance with these portraits of panelists in New York Magazine’s ‘Sex Issue’. These are so-called “pickup artists”, who have written books or have some intimate knowledge of sex and relationship stuff.

With such a tight deadline on these (overnight) I sent the art director just one sketch and he liked it so much he suggested I do all of the portraits as sketches. I’ve always enjoyed the sketch phase of my portraits and was happy to use my sketches as finals.
