Fast Company – Business Celebrities

Fast Company - Business Celebrities

Portraits in progress, inked and waiting to be painted

I’ve been doing a few portrait jobs lately and was excited when I got this assignment for Fast Company. It’s a really awesome magazine and I had the chance to meet with the art director twice for portfolio interviews while I was living in New York (one of the few places I contacted that still met with illustrators). It took a while but I finally landed this job illustrating the portraits of business celebrities for the holiday issue (on sale now!).

Each portrait accompanies a snippet indicating what they want for Christmas. The fourth person on the right (top row) is Jason Kilar who is the CEO of Hulu, which I loved while I was in NY. His Christmas wish is to spend time with his family while vacationing in Canada, which I thought was funny because we unlucky Canadians have no access to Hulu, thanks to being geo-blocked. I guess it’s the perfect place for him to get away from it all.
