Derby Etiquette Illustration for Louisville Magazine

derby etiquette illustration for louisville magazine

Louisville Magazine, contacted me to do an illustration for their Derby issue this year, and of COURSE I jumped at the opportunity! It's always such an exciting issue to be a part of. The article is about Derby Etiquette and discusses how NOT to be "that guy" when you are out at Churchill Downs.

Below are the thumbnails I sent the art director:

She chose the bottom right option. Here's the final drawing before I took it to final:

And since I know you love seeing some behind-the-scenes action, here's a few of the reference photos we took. Pardon the poor white balancing, these aren't usually for the public's eye, they are just for getting a hand shape correct or a shoulder in place.

Till next time! p.s. Go Knights!

What a great illustration! I'm not sure who's more "that guy," the drunk dude or the fella acting too cool to enjoy the race.

Thanks, Emily! My favorite character is the drunk chick in the middle... there's always one of those no matter WHAT type of event you go to!
