Slavery Spots

For one of my children's magazine clients this month, I had an assignment to do a series of color spots portraying slave life in the Antebellum South. I approached these a little looser than I normally do, and I was quite pleased with how many of them turned out, looking more like traditional primitive woodcut illustrations than the more tightly rendered images I sometimes produce. I liked how I left a lot more white space around these images too, which helps the black 'pop' a little better.
