Digging for Treasure

Barrons, Scholastic

Been a busy week. I started sketches for a large project (that unfortunately for the blog will have to remain under wraps until publication), plus had a few projects with shorter deadlines due midweek. The black and white illustration above was a quick turnaround assignment for Barrons, and below is (believe it or not) the first assignment to come from the large postcard I sent out earlier this year. This was a new client, Scholastic (although I may have done some work for them through a 3rd party in the distant past), and was a map of the United States showing various interesting ‘New Years Ball Drop’ items that are used throughout the country.
