New Work for the Globe and Mail

Here’s a new piece I was recently contacted to do for the Globe and Mail. I was again able to work with the fantastic art director Matthew French.The story was about a man who is reluctant to become the cycling coach of a group of young African boys in Windhoek, Namibia.



I haven’t ever posted my sketches before, so I thought I’d go ahead and show the sketches that I submitted to Matt.



I really, really hate wasting paper, and also having to erase/draw/erase until I get the sketch exactly right, so all of my sketches I now usually do on the computer, so it’s much easier to revise without a lot of hassle (not to mention all those eraser bits on the floor!)

Matthew was most interested in sketches #3 and #4, so I went with sketch #3 because of the stacked figures and unique way it might interact with the text in the final design.
