Above: a detail from my November 16, 2012 Boston Globe illustration.
Here's a quick rough-to-finish process blog entry for my Globe art that was published on Friday.
The piece was for a poem about various pet peeves by Joan Wickersham.
First, the very rough drawing. My eyes only. From my sketchbook, drawn in ink:
Here is a tighter pencil rough for the editor. I wrote to her:
Here's a rough sketch of a mean zookeeper, taking it out on those annoying people (the email "reply all" guy, the person talking in the movie theatre, the no-headlights-on driver, and the non-flusher) who are caged like zoo animals.
And below, the finish, with a couple of changes: the zookeeper is now gleeful about having these people in cages, and the zookeeper roughly resembles the author of the poem.
