Illustrations for The Walrus
I have 8 illustrations in the current issue of The Walrus for their Miscellany section. The top image is the header for the section, and I also worked on pieces for the Letters page, Editor’s note and Contributors page.
I had the choice of coming up with a theme to tie all the illustrations together. I ended up with three ideas and was really happy that the art director decided on my Grapes of Wrath theme. It worked really well with the content of all the sections. The Grapes of Wrath is one of my favorite books (okay, it’s my favorite book of all time) and I’ve wanted to do some illustrations based on the book for a while.
Another bonus was being able to draw water towers for the Editor’s Note (about water being the new oil). If you know me, you know I love water towers.
This was an amazing assignment for a great magazine I’ve wanted to work with for a while. You can check out some of the articles and other illustrations on their website as well. Thanks to Jen and Pete at The Walrus for a fun project!
