The Audacity of Hillary!

"Hillary Clinton might be the Dem's presidential front-runner, but the trip to the White House makes a stop in Obama Country. Can the hometown girl beat the state's favorite son on what's now his home turf?" - David Bernstein, Chicago Magazine.










I shared a sneak peak of this a few weeks back, it's now published, so I can go ahead and share the whole piece with everyone. It's always nice when you pick up a magazine that you did work for and the actual printing job is done well, this is one of those jobs. I was at the grocery store with my wife last night and I saw the new issue of Chicago Magazine, flipped through it and found my illustration, always a cool feeling to see your work on the stands. I hope I never loose that childlike feeling.

Anyways, I've as you can see attached the full image as well as cropped close-ups! Technically I probably shouldn't have given so much attention and detail to Hillary because of how small she is in the illustration, however I couldn't control myself. The sketch and photo reference was too good to not have more fun with!

You are a killer.
If I can permitt myself a critic, I would say that I don't really like the white background as for the pete devil. But I guess it's for the final print of the magazine. I really like the drawing of Obama's face. Thanks for sharing your great work.

I know what you mean Jason.. the buzz one gets for the accomplishment of a job done - well and knowing it will be viewed outside the vacuum of yourself. Glad you were able to give us the WIP and now a follow-up with the finish.

I don't know how you do it man. To save myself the ego pounding, I'll just pretend you're part of some advanced alien race with evolved painting tools. Yeah, that sounds right. AWESOME.

I love this caricature! The Obama image is well done, but Hillary Clinton herself is truly a gift to cartoonists and caricaturists the world over -- and you did an exceptional job. Very fun.
