I recently did a series for Time Out Chicago Kids for articles highlighting Chicago’s playgrounds, and the lack thereof in certain areas. Check out the online version of the section including a few of my illustrations throughout. There are a few more that only appear in the print version.
This was a really fun assignment to draw and I enjoyed added my own cocepts into the mix. Getting to douse a bulldozer with boogers was one of the highlights for me.
I created these 95% in Adobe Illustrator with some final touches and color adjustment s in Photoshop. For the most part I worked directly from my sketches> Normally i might do a second draft in pencil to ink digitally, but the deadline was pretty tight, and I was already pretty happy with the sketches. That also helped keep the energy the initial sketches.
