Misleading title, I know. The fire and the crowd were drawn for totally separate illustrations. That, somehow, didn’t make them any easier. The Activist and Trickle Down Effect were both done for the same issue of The Work Style magazine. Both were art directed by Marta Scetta. I had a lot of fun with these two as they were rather active.
From thumbnails to final, here’s the process for The Activist…
… and the process for Trickle Down Effect.
Marta chose #2 with only one change, switching from a male character to female character. This terrific idea lent itself to create a more interesting character, as the male juggler that I’d drawn looked sort of generic.
