CRUSH is the leading voice for local, independent food and beverage in Southwest Florida. CRUSH is dedicated to the success of local chefs, restaurateurs, brewers, distillers, growers, farmers, distributors, and more. CRUSH’s fresh take on content and community gives me the opportunity to create equally fresh cover art. Gone are the typical food and beverage photographs in favor of a viciously vivacious monster mascot Lilith. I’m able to explore new styles and textures for each cover while remaining true to the character and the flavor of the magazine.
