Portrait Assignment Sketch

Delaware Today, rough sketches

Been a long dry spell for illustration work, but I’ve a few upcoming projects in the works. I got this assignment on Monday from Delaware Today (they had a photo they wanted to use, but it was pretty low resolution, and an illustration seemed to solve the problem I guess). This is the rough sketch I sent to the editors, and I’m hoping to do the finish in a style similar to the ones I’ve done of my friend Julie K recently (example 1, example 2).
