New York Times

Just finished a quick turn around job for  The New York Times. It will be in this sundays dialogue section. I'll post the whole image then but in the meantime heres a taster.

Employee benefits magazine

Heres a recent illustration for employee benefits magazine.

The fact i often draw the back of figures , often looking off into some horizon has been mentioned before.
But with this job I wanted to pick up on an indirect link  to an earlier observation drawing of a man looking out of a  hospital window....

and then the following woodcut ( which is still in progress).

At the moment  it feels like my drawing and printmaking is  aesthetically moving further away from my illustration work, but through this job is was nice to see how it still informs it. Whilst obvious, its good to validate that play, making work for ones self can still feed the commisioned work.
