Fishing Illustration by John Dyess for Update Magazine

detail from fishing illustration

I created this illustration in 1991 for a magazine called Update, published at this time by Southwestern Bell.The article it was used for was called “A reel love affair” which was about Americas fishing industry.The art director was Alan Landholt . Alan was a classmate at Washington University art school and was one of my favorite art directors I worked with. The size of the painting was 19″ by 18″ and was drawn and painted on vellum. I did a pen and ink drawing first using a 000 technical pen and then colored the drawing with liquid acrylic paint. I used this illustration in mailers which were sent to outdoor magazines.
