Next Illustration for ‘Lodging’ magazine

My newest illustration for Lodging magazine is for an article advising hotel owners who are interested in selling their property to ‘tell the story’ of the opportunity their hotel creates for investors. The editor of the magazine suggested a ‘story time’ scene, although she didn’t want it to make the adults look too silly. I did a pencil sketch for that idea and also tried a version where the hotel’s ‘story’ is a huge storybook –

She liked the big storybook better, so I tightened up the sketch a bit –

And sent the editor a quick color sketch with colored pencils, which she approved –

I drew the final art in prisma pencil on illustration board, and painted it in acrylic washes:
