A typographic cover illustration for the inaugural Variety500, a new initiative by Variety magazine indexing the 500 global leaders in the entertainment industry. 

"Being the first ever issue I wanted to create something special, so decided to play with the title type to create a graphic and abstract artwork that will hopefully make people look twice.The design was digitally drawn-up and then hand-cut out of sheets of coloured paper, using a sophisticated monotone palette with additional red tones to add a flash of vibrancy. These sheets of paper were then layered up at varying heights to give the artwork an interesting visual depth and photographed in my studio using natural light. "
