Unusual Heat, leading Thoroughbred stallion in California for 2012, commissioned for the cover of the 2013 California Thoroughbred Breeders Association (CTBA) Stallion Directory. Reference photo by Emily Shields. Prismacolor colored pencils and Panpastels (background) on 16.5" x 12.75" black pastel paper. The dimensions are 1.5 times the magazine cover, and I had to do some searching to find a place to scan a large drawing. It's the biggest illustration I've ever done (and possibly the best, in my opinion).
Here's a link to the directory online: http://issuu.com/californiathoroughbred/docs/2013califthorstalliondirectory?viewMode=magazine&mode=embed
