Magazine cover: Torchlight - Edwards Communications
Magazine cover - photo and illustration  by Barry Edwards, Edwards Communications

Full page magazine cover design for the Cleveland Ad Association’s Torchlight magazine.

I took this photo in Little Italy around 2001. I used my new 1.6 megapixel Olympus camera -incredibly low resolution by today’s standards, but it captured enough detail for me to enlarge and enhance a few years later to create this illustration for the Cleveland Ad Association’s Torchlight Magazine.

I wanted to capture the true European feel of Little Italy. Having been to Italy in 2010, I can say that I accomplished what I was hoping for.
