This was about a young LAPD officer targeted for a retribution killing by the Mexican mafia. He was gunned down in his own driveway while moving one of his child's car seats.

I was really pleased with AD Darrick Rainey's design and typography.

Darrick challenged me to do something completely different and conceptual for this shooting story (appartently they've done alot). So that made me a bit nervous.
Color wise I favored the red mass, but I felt the black shape helped establish the main character better.

Darrick requested I rely on line work to establish the detail rather than my more textured style, because of printing concerns. Which was fine by me, I find line work a bit more relaxing to do anyhow, although it's not my strength.

A little detail of the concept.
