A new illustration for Vue Weekly in Edmonton. Edmonton is in Alberta, a province familiar with booms and busts due to its reliance on oil mon
ey. The concept was to depict a millionaire in a soup line, to accompany an article on the emergence of the 'bust' part of the cycle.
Since I always find myself wishing more illustrators showed their process, I'm going to try out showing mine, even though I'm very much a novice compared to the illustrators whose blogs I compulsively read. So here we go: concept sketch
Final sketch (looking at them now I kind of prefer the concept sketch
to the final one. I think I lost some of the spontaneity, and had better composition).
