It Was A Light Summer for Work and Freelance

Break time was over and it was time to start drawing again. I’m not sure if you struggle like me, but the first line is always the hardest. After that the rest just flows. 

I wasn’t completely slacking off. It’s been really busy at my real job and I also managed to knock out a commission (see below). With #inktober2022 just around the corner, it’s time to dust off the pens and see if I still have my lines. 

I had the pleasure of working on a fun commission for The Overhead Wire@theoverheadwire which is a consulting firm that specializes in urban planning and sharing information about cities with advocates, elected leaders, researchers and other interested parties. 

I’m a huge fan of their podcast, Talking Headways. You should check it out!

For this project, I was asked to come up with a T-Shirt graphic that represented the theme, “Cars are Cholesterol” Their idea was to show how cars are congesting cities. The idea was to have a real looking heart and the arteries are full of cars. The heart could look like an urban landscape. With a lot of collaboration, we came up with this. 

Here is the rough sketch and some images of how I turned the art into a graphic for the T-Shirt.
