July Scratchboards

ChronicleHE, Legal Times, Newsday

The above ‘occupation pyramid’ illustration was for Legal Times. I notice that I stuck a self portrait in the second tier. The illustration to the left was for the Chronicle of Higher Education, as was the ‘mortarboard boats’ illustration below.

The illustration to the left, about ‘open debates’ was for Newsday, as was the rather strange illustration below. I think this one had something to do with unscrupulous phone companies switching carriers on unsuspecting long distance customers. I went a little overboard with the special effects on this one. One thing I eventually learned from this intoxicating first year of illustrating digitally, was to avoid using all the bells and whistles, and to stick to learning to draw better.
