Newspaper Illustration

This illustration got published in a newspaper in town... in 1998. The text was written by Simeon Tsakiris. Actually it was a great experiment I had the art before the text. The article was written based on the art. I did hundreds of illustrations every month for a two year period I worked for the paper. Again the style I used for the illos were very unusual and long before other artists used the same esthetics. The fact that years later TASCHEN picked my art in ILLUSTRATION NOW was nice though.

Newspaper Illustration

I worked for a local newspaper for more than 2 years around 1998 to 2000.
Was producing more than 100 illustrations a month...

Here is one I found in my archives today.

The piece actually is two photocopies of the original drawings collaged as one piece...

Pre photoshop days...

Newspaper Illustration.

Another one from the past... when I was around 17 I worked for a local newspaper for two years producing as many illustrations as 100 per month. Weird decision for a newspaper to have an illustrator in their team but great times!
