Some little people from an upcoming illustration for Ebony. The piece is on a large city street, dealing with gentrification of older neighborhoods. I liked how these turned as individual characters, making shapes. Below is a preview of the spread.
Got an email yesterday from Nathan Huang at the NY Times OP-Ed page for a quick letters illustration. This weekend is memorial day, and the topic of Veteran’s health benefits and access to care is the subject of the illustration.
These are always fun to do, three hours for sketches and then another two hours to do the final. Your brain pushes out solutions and it’s your job to sift through all the noise for something that is achievable and simple.
The Black and White is in the printed paper and color is on line. I love acid green! Final printed size is about 3” so for all you newspaper readers out there keep your eyes peeled in today’s NY Times.
Cheers and thanks to huanglorious for the call.
It’s always a pleasure to interpret and visualize medical or scientific articles. I love finding different solutions that both relate to the subject and allow for some experimentation in the creative process.
I don’t claim to be able to accurately represent complicated sciencey stuff but thankfully my clients don’t ask me to be! This is for the Scientist magazine, a full page and four spots dealing with the science of germs.
Here’s a spot and a crop of the full page for Metaleap Creative agency, I had a fun time with this quick drawing. Everybody gets big hands!
In case you missed out, yesterday on the Today show one of the drawings I made for Family Circle popped up in the background. The feature was on food labels and the jargon that is used in packaging. Lisa Kelsey the AD brought it to my attention. Attached are some screenshots I could find, what’s up AL?!??!
I like the weirdo corn cob in the last image…
