I thought it might be interesting to compare the original drawing at top I did with the finished illustration at the bottom. This was for an article for the Monthly on American kids taking up the European practice of the gap year between high school and college. The idea was all the art director's, I have to confess. I'm quite excited because the Monthly has accepted my story idea for Shipyard Labs, which I posted about here.
Edit: The Illustration Friday prompt is adrift, so I'm going to go ahead and link this up.
