Whimsical illustration for a poster project I’m working on for the Performing Arts Division of New Trier High School. The production is “Commedia” in Performance (I may have the punctuation on that title a little wrong). It’s a little different for me, but then again, all of the pieces I’ve done for New Trier have been outside my game a little. But it’s cool because it’s some of the only freelance work I’ve had that involves my illustration abilities.

So, I’m reading The Giver, by Lois Lowry, and enjoying it thoroughly. It’s a young adult book, and I read it first in 5th grade. It has some neat existential themes, and an interesting take on what the world would be like without pain and suffering. This is an illustration based on the old man on the cover of the book. Enjoy.

I wasn’t a fan of the drawing really, but after working it in Photoshop, I’m pretty satisfied.
Now, I’m well aware that neat Photoshop tricks don’t in any way make up for a bad drawing, but I feel like it’s finally becoming a strong tool for me rather than a crutch that it became when I was in college.
