Village Voice Cover

I just finished a cover illustration for the Village Voice in NYC. I was working with Ivylise Simones on this one. I worked with her back when she was at the Miami New Times, and it was great to work with her again. The cover story is a really horrific cold case in the Bronx that's just been solved. Its a very sad story that, no matter the outcome of any trial, doesn't have a happy ending. Read it here.

I recently got a call from Joshua Kors, the author of the story. He called to compliment me on my illustration, and to tell me that he appreciated my work. I've never actually heard from any writers of the articles I've illustrated, so it was great to hear from him. Thanks again for the kind words Joshua, and keep up the good work.


  1. Hey Justin, that was a great illustration. I chanced upon it while I was Googling for "Village Voice covers" for a blog entry and yours stopped me cold.

    You caputred both innocence and evil so skillfully. Good work and good luck in the future.

  2. Thanks so much! I really appreciate your kind words.
