An assignment to illustrate the cover story for the University of Richmond alumni magazine allowed me to test my digital airbrush skills. The story heralded the school’s recruiting effort to “lure” star talent. Of course I was required include representation of the school’s campus, which thankfully, is indeed lakeside.  Worried that the design would be determined “by committee” I was pleasantly surprised when the first sketch was accepted ­— hook, line and sinker!
