This is an illustration ran in my hometown newspaper a few weeks ago. I can't remember what the story was about. Had something to do with people and friendships and isolation and how we maintain friendships differently in the age of technology. Make sense?
Anyway, I wanted to do something figurative and experiment with split complementary color schemes — in this case, yellow and violet. I also threw in a bit of green. When I work, I also look for humorous opportunities.
