5 Hour turn around for The Weekly Standard!

Another crazy-quick deadline that I did for The Weekly Standard this past Friday! I was called around 1:00 P.M. and asked to do something loose and sketchy . . . which is a good thing considering the final was due by 5:00 P.M. that same day. It was a lot of fun to do, I love drawing and sketching, and wish I had more time for it. There's something very therapeutic about sketching, something freeing about it that I really enjoy . . . it also helps when your subject has a fantastic face to work with, so thank you Martha Minow!

Close up . . . I wasn't going for an ultra tight rendered look, in fact, I wanted the opposite, loose and alive . . . a quick way to draw.

This is a quick thumbnail sketch I did to explore shape and design.

Great drawing. I think I saw the photo you used as a reference. I really did not know what she looked like. Really nice caricature of her. You really nailed it!

As Duane, I did'nt know what Martha Minow looked like, and was very happy to find her photo and compare it to her caricature. It's a really awesome sketchy illustration.

Excellent line work Jason - you show once again how your drawing is the engine room of great painted works, whether it be watercolor, acrylic or oil. Never tire of seeing all these constructions.

This time next year you'll be getting the brief at 4pm and the deadline will be 4:30...

And no doubt it'll still be a cracking illustration!
