This is the first cover story I created for the finance magazine ONWARD by Charles Schwab. The client requested an owl which feathers were made out of tax forms. The owl in the cover was used to represent wisdom, encouraging customers to be on time with their taxes. I printed the American IRS 1040 tax form in the paper and created a pattern to give the Owl a more interesting texture.
I started by creating a vector drawing that will be used during the process to follow the shape and dimensions.
