a full page illustration for the latest issue of djoef, and a real fun one to do. so fun it grew from the assigned half page to the full page posted above. thanks to stig at djoef (the most understanding editor i have worked with) this caused no problems at all, and the lay outer worked his usual magic.
a close-up of the people standing in line. i tried to give them distinct and believable personalities, and hopefully make them look more like people i drew in the street, than characters i pulled out of my little grey cells at the drawing table.
the guy falling/dangling through the hole made me think of the amazing artist Jack Davis. i think i have captured a milligram of the vivid energy that the characters of Jack Davis always have.
