Editorial Illustration concept for an article about – “Naming bands after birds is in decline”

This piece is for a fictional magazine cover and editorial spread. The article would be about bands with bird names. I watched a documentary which talked about all the great bands named after birds… especially great jazz bands. (sorry grammar folks, I cannot figure out the em dash on this keyboard, hopefully, Dot, Dot, Dots will work)

The sole purpose of the illustration is to attract attention to the magazine/article. It’s an abstract design with bold colors. If you saw this magazine on a news rack, I believe you would pick it and read it.

Please note: If this were real I would adjust the article title on the cover and a few other things in the page spread. I just have not had to do so…
