Jason Lyon : Chance


Commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
I created this piece for Popshot Magazine's Chance issue, which was commissioned by art editor Lauren Debono-Elliot. This illustration is inspired by Ovid's quote from Heroides: “Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.”

How was the illustration used:
This illustration was published in Popshot Magazine's chance issue.

How did you make this work:
I sketched out a few potential roughs and checked with Lauren to see which one she preferred. After she confirmed my rough, I began everything on Procreate on my iPad.
