"The Problem With Boys"
This illustration was done for my editorial illustration class. We were to pick a magazine that typically hires illustrators, pick an article and create an illustration for it. The magazine article I chose was called "The Problem With Boys," and was written for Esquire magazine. The article examined how boys were falling far behind their female counterparts in school. I chose to draw a boy staring blankly out at the reader, referencing mugshots. He looks lost and in need of help. I used a multi-layered technique to achieve this effect. The pieces are entirely hand drawn and painted, and scanned together.
