Reconstruction and Construction Paper {illustration}




This illustration was one of those magical ones that happen when minds and ideas come together perfectly. Breast cancer is a hard subject to illustrate tastefully but I thought we did a great job here. Glo, the designer, sparked the idea and after some torrential brainstorming by designer, art director and illustrator - this is the finished product. The execution - the drawing and actual paper cutting - took the least amount of time. It almost took just as long to come up with a headline that worked without being too clever or punny. Thankfully, our headline writer played it safe. When you have a great idea, the rest falls into place. Do you think so too? Would you have done anything differently?
