150 Miles of Hell

I recently read an article in Men’s Journal by Jeff Tietz called “150 Miles of Hell” and found it truly fascinating and scary. You can read it here. I liked it so much I wanted to try to illustrate a spread for it. After doing some conceptual style sketches I decided to go a route I rarely go and illustrate the images in my head. The final illustration is a bit gory and morbid, but for me that’s how the story was. The content is frightening. Why shouldn’t the visual representation be the same?

The illustration was done in brush and ink with digital coloring and the titles were done in ink on hand-made watercolor paper.
