Our first few projects were somewhat self assigned, we had a list to choose from, this one was a caricature, and I chose George Washington, but we also had to put it in the context it would be used in, so i decided to put it in the nytimes book review. Ralph let me write a fake article and everything. I just wanted to have washington smiling since we never see him in a lighter light.
Here is the spot in the context of the article.
This was the first assignment, one week. Though typically i only have a handful of days to really work since i have thursday and friday illustration classes and this class is tuesday, although i've gotten used to working within that tight time frame, good thing too since i hear the editorial market is very similar with tight short deadlines.
