Almost screwed this project up. Got another assignment for Delaware Today last week, and completely dropped the ball on getting the sketches to the client (forgot to put it on my calendar, and only blind luck had me stumble upon the assignment before the final deadline had passed). After realizing my mistake, I went into overdrive and got the whole thing done in a single day, sketches to final so I could deliver it a day early (aside from a slight tweak to the background color, which I did the next morning). I’ll have to be more careful in the future. Oddly enough, this was the first time I’ve had an opportunity to draw a caricature of Joe Biden in the almost 8 years he and Obama have been in office. A tricky assignment, as most of the men in the picture that I was caricaturing were totally unfamiliar to me. I hope I came close.
Also this week had another assignment for the Chronicle of Higher Education, on philanthropists, and is pictured below.
