Black and White Spots


The above illustration was for my national newspaper client, and concerned the upcoming olympic games and security precautions.

The illustration at left, was for the same client, and went with an article about bookkeeping scrutiny. (these top two illustrations were actually done in February, but fit better into this posting)

Accounting scandals seemed to be in the news this month, as I had another piece for the same client about a well known firm having difficulties in the courts. (pictured below)

Another illustration for the same client is pictured to the right. This was an illustration to accompany an article about PC owners who are loyal to a fault to their troublesome computers.

The next two illustrations below were for the same client in March. The 'uncle sam' illo is no doubt something to do with tax loopholes, and I don't quite remember what the small figures running into the sunset below that was for.

The next two illustrations were both for an east coast newspaper client. The illustration to the left had to do with the oscar race, and I don't quite remember what the illustration below was about (something about Hamlet and Yorrick perhaps?)

Color Work for March


The above illustration was for an east coast newspaper client of mine. I don't quite remember the story, but I seem to think it was about 'self examination' (?). Probably shouldn't have mixed the scratchboard with the more realistic treatment of the CT scan, the styles don't mix well.
Another couple of illustrations for the same client are pictured below. Both had something to do with the rash of priest pedophilia cases that were all over the news at the time (and I'd do a few more on the same topic over the next few months).



The illustration above and below were for a catholic magazine client of mine. I don't quite remember what the story was on each of these. (and now that I think of it, I think one of these may have been for a different jesuit publication, but I don't remember which is which)

One illustration that I really wasn't happy with this month, was the drawing below, for an east coast legal newspaper. I wasn't crazy about the concept (given by the editors), and I'm afraid my lack of enthusiasm shows plainly in the finished product.
