My latest assignment was to illustrate the cover of The Progressive. The Wisconsin based magazine ran an article about the state's controversial governor - Scott Walker, who's been accused of some dubious acts and working with some pretty corrupt people on his administration. The people of Wisconsin are so frustrated with Walker that they have gathered over a million signatures in the hopes of having him recalled!

On this image, I worked with a triangular composition - in the hopes of giving the drawing more momentum and drama despite the fact that the Governor is wrapped in a stiff package. Thanks to AD Nick Jehlen, who assigned me this illustration and picked a hot red for the cover type.
Below is the final illustration:

(also, don't confuse this guy with the fantastic singer - Scott Walker! an all time favorite)
