It's been a busy couple weeks. About half of it was spent working on an illustration assignment. The other half was spent in bed with a variety of flus. I was productive in both cases, though the fruits of my labor from the "bed office" wasn't nearly as satisfactory:
The better half (health and production-wise) was spent working with the art director of Revenue Magazine on a feature article about newspapers "folding" as more people get their news online. He had a pretty clear idea of what he wanted from the start, and sent me this sketch:I had a couple other ideas as well, so i did a preliminary sketch of his idea, as well as one of my own.He liked both of them, so he asked me to stick with the first one, and to do the newsboy as a spot illustration to put in later on in the feature.
