Rough Seas {illustration}

This was a tough assignment that ended up being fun. It was a story by Dean Calbreath on the top companies that have managed to stay afloat during these uncertain times. Sometimes business stories can be so serious and seem so dry to illustrate. I hate to admit that I dread brainstorming these types of stories, but when you connect with your concept it can be so worth it. I really hate resorting to adding type to illustrations, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Making the waves was the best part of this process - scanning money makes me feel like a criminal!
