2019 Humor Issue cover art

For the second year in a row, the local alt-weekly for Asheville, Mountain Xpress, has put out a “humor” issue that features many parodic and satirical articles and features, in addition to the normal, serious ones that appear otherwise.

For the second year in a row, I was asked to do the cover for this issue. This year, I did the cover as a “tabloid” style of the National Enquirer ilk, only using local stories and alluding to some of the actual parodies inside the issue.

Below are some work in progress screenshots from the caricatures of county commissioner, Al Whitesides and local busking legend, Abby the Spoon Lady; as well as the color comp I submitted for the final piece seen as published today.
