Here's a fun cover I did for 5280 magazine in Denver. Apparently the Superbowl Champion Denver Broncos offseason has been a bit of a circus. Aqib Talib shot himself, Vonn Miller was on every single tv show that aired. Anywhere. The legendary butffumbler Mark Sanchez appeared to be John Elway's answer to Peyton Manning, who bade farewell the the NFL by turning in worst superbowl performance by a quarterback in like, ever. Demaryius Thomas still has the hands of an unathletic Pinocchio.
 
Really, though, the Denver fans are the most fun. There's a fine line betweeen the rabid, face painting football fan and a dark corner of the internets inspired Cosplayer. Think about it.
 
Dave McKenna was the art director for this, and he was very sympathic to the fact that I was working on this while on vacation on Martha's Vineyard, often working in damp surfer shorts and sandy feet.
Here are some snaps of the horrible working conditions I had to endure. Is OSHA in the house?!

How could you stand working in that Hellish environment Dale? I think the retired Elway WOULD be better than Sanchez.

Well, someone has to do the dirty work. Congrats on the cover. Looks good.
